The Sea-Fisheries Protection Authority (SFPA), the independent regulator for the sea-fishing and seafood sectors, is hosting a special Fishing Industry Information Breakfast for fishermen, processors and shellfish producers based in the south west areas on Wednesday, October 12, 2016 as part of a series of information events being held around the country over the coming months. Inspection requirements, landing obligations and technical measures are among the many topics that will be covered at the event, which is free to attend.

The SFPA will be joined by representatives from a wide range of organisations including: the Department of Agriculture, Food and the Marine; Air Corps; BIM; FSAI; Marine Institute; Naval Service; Inland Fisheries Ireland; National Parks and Wildlife Service and the Workplace Relations Commission amongst others. They will provide information and help with queries on the latest developments and regulations as well as day-to-day matters relating to the industry including quota management, food safety and trade.

The SFPA Information Breakfast is taking place on Wednesday, October 12, 2016 from 8am to 12pm at the Maritime Hotel in Bantry. Places are limited and anyone interested in attending is asked to register by emailing events@sfpa.ie by Friday, October 7, 2016.

Susan Steele, Chair, SFPA said: “The SFPA is committed to playing our part in ensuring the Irish fishing industry has a strong future. Advances in technology and production as well as new EU regulations are leading to significant changes in fishing industry practice in Ireland. These events are a one-stop opportunity for fishermen, processors and producers to learn more about these changes and have their queries on these or other important issues relating to the industry answered personally by experts from the relevant organisations.”
