Inishkea Autumn Fishery Review

The Minister for Agriculture, Food & the Marine has, following representations (made through the North West Regional Inshore Fisheries Forum) revoked the Razor Clam (Conservation of Stocks) (Inishkea Islands) Regulations 2016 to allow fishing to take place. 

The decision to revoke the prohibition on fishing was made having regard to:

  • Advice from the Marine Institute on a total allowable catch;
  • Agreement from the North West RIFF that a limited amount of fishing can be sustained up to the taking of the recommended TAC, and;
  • The fishery is open to those sea-fishing boats which meet the licensing and regulatory requirements in place including in relation to monitoring of activity and reporting of catch.

S.I. 137 of 2016 has been revoked as of 8 December 2016.
