• Strategy for the development of the eel fishery in Ireland

      Moriarty, C. (Marine Institute, 1999)
      In the course of a reply to a Parliamentary Question on eel in February 1997, the Minister stated that ‘there is considerable potential for development of the fishery and an integrated development strategy plan is being formulated’. The Marine Institute and other bodies were asked by the Department of the Marine to prepare a submission. The material which follows is based on the author’s work as a biologist, first in the fisheries service of the Government and, subsequently in the Marine Institute.
