Draft Fishery Natura Plan for Irish Sea Mussel Seed Fishery for the years 2018-2023

A public consultation is now underway on a draft Fishery Natura Plan for Irish Sea Mussel Seed Fishery for the years 2018-2023 and the associated Appropriate Assessment report.

The plan was drafted by the Secretariat of the Bottom Grown Mussel Consultative Forum in consultation with Bord Iascaigh Mhara and industry members of the Bottom Grown Mussel Consultative Forum.  The Marine Institute has prepared the Appropriate Assessment report.

The plan covers mussel seed fishing in the Irish Sea in the period 1 January 2018 to 31 December 2023.  It sets out the arrangements for the Irish Sea mussel seed fishery.  It follows on from a previous plan which took effect from 2013 for five years.
