Podcast: Aquaculture Not Understood
On this week’s Podcast the very difficult situation in which the aquaculture sector has been placed because of Covid 19 and the lack of immediate support from the State to assist the country’s fish farmers is outlined by the IFA’s Aquaculture Executive, Teresa Morrissey.
She tells Marine Times Deputy Editor, Tom MacSweeney, that there is a lack of understanding of what the sector is facing. Without an immediate response, there is a strong possibility of long-term damage, with the shellfish sector likely to be particularly impacted.
The IFA has offered a number of proposals for assistance to the Department of the Marine and BIM, without positive response so far.
