  • Atlas: Commercial fisheries for shellfish around Ireland

    Tully, O. (Marine Institute, 2017)
    Fishing is the longest standing and most prevalent marine activity in the territorial and coastal waters of Ireland. Today over 2,000 vessels are registered as commercial fishing vessels and over 80% of these are under 12m in length and depend largely or completely on the territorial waters of the state. The increased level and diversity of activity in the maritime space has highlighted the need for efficient and co-ordinated management of its use to avoid conflict and to identify, where possible, synergies both within and between sectors. These objectives are reflected in the Marine Spatial Planning (MSP) Directive which came into force in 2014 and which requires EU Member States to establish and implement maritime spatial planning (EU/89/2014). There is a need to manage and plan industrial activity, including fishing, in a spatial context. These spatial data have already been used in Ireland to assess the interaction between fisheries and Special Areas of Conservation (SACs) (www.fishingnet.ie/fishinginnaturaareas, Marine Institute 2015). The new data are presented here but the scope is restricted to Shellfish fisheries and with an emphasis on the distribution of these fisheries in internal and territorial waters.
  • Review of sea lice monitoring and seatrout/sealice database

    Poole, R; O'Maoileidigh, N; Jackson, D; Gargan, P; Keatinge, M (2001)
    In February 1998, the Minister of State at the Department of the Marine requested that the Marine Institute, the Central Fisheries Board and the Salmon Research Agency review the effectiveness of the national sea trout research and monitoring programmes. It was agreed to review the scientific database, methodologies and data collection/ collation, identify steps to address any unidentified deficiencies in the programme techniques, and re-run data analysis in light of the previously commissioned independent reports and any subsequent responses from the various agencies involved in data collection. A thorough re-examination of the sea lice sampling programme, including changes and improvements made since 1997, for sea trout was carried out and suggestions for improvements in this programme were made. A comprehensive examination of the sea lice/sea trout was carried out in light of the independent reports which identified discrepancies in the original data.
