Podcast: John Nolan, Managing Director, Castletownbere Fishermen’s Co-Operative

As you’ll have read in our Editorial this week, there are sectors of the French fishing industry attempting to boycott and intimidate the sale of non/French caught fish in France. This is typical of the French industry when it ignores EU regulations and, as John Nolan, Managing Director of the Castletownbere Fishermen’s Co-operative points out in this week’s Podcast, he is deeply disappointed by their attitude. Bear in mind, that the French have sequestered with EU support and refused to change, that they have 50 per cent of the monkfish quota in Irish waters, while Irish boats have been allocated by the EU only 5 per cent of this quota in our own Irish waters.
