VICTORY for CAMPAIGNERS - GALWAY BAY MEGA FARM WITHDRAWN
The Galway Bay license application was being funding by the Minister for Agriculture Food and Fisheries through Bord Iascaigh Mhara [BIM], the statutory body for the development of the sea food industry. This funding was given in spite of the restriction in the National Development Plan 2007 -2012. The National Development Plan 2007 -2013 includes the Irish Seafood National Programme 2007 – 2013, dated July 2010 which states that ‘no financial assistance will be given to marine salmon aquaculture licence holders during the course of this National Programme until such time as the sea lice issue has been satisfactorily resolved.’(page 99).
For the Galway Bay proposed super farm which will in itself double the national production of farmed salmon, we recommend the Inland Fisheries Ireland submission as part of the statutory consultation process and the Board’s subsequent statement.
