Podcast:

The guest interviewee on our Podcast this week is Hugo Boyle, Chief Executive Officer of the South and East Fish Producers’ Organisation. He talks to Marine Times Deputy Editor, Tom MacSweeney, about the current situation of the industry for his members, following the rejection by Marine Minister Michael Creed of the proposal by the country’s four fish producer organisations for assistance to the industry to deal with the problems of the Covid 19 Pandemic.

He says that the industry is in a very difficult situation and outlines the effects on fishing boat owners, crews, their families and the coastal communities dependent upon the industry. He has blunt comments about the manner in which the Minister responded and says that there should be much greater appreciation of the fishing industry at government level.
