In­for­ma­tion break­fast for fish­ing in­dus­try

Bray People - - NEWS -

A FISH­ING in­dus­try in­for­ma­tion break­fast is to be held in Dublin next week for fish­er­men, pro­ces­sors and shell­fish pro­duc­ers from Co Wick­low.

The Sea-Fish­eries Pro­tec­tion Au­thor­ity (SFPA), the in­de­pen­dent reg­u­la­tor for the sea-fish­ing and seafood sec­tors, is host­ing the free event which is tak­ing place next Wed­nes­day, May 18, from 8 a.m. to noon at the Mal­dron Ho­tel at Dublin Air­port and which is also open to those work­ing in the in­dus­try in Dublin and Louth. In­spec­tion re­quire­ments, land­ing obli­ga­tions and tech­ni­cal mea­sures are among the many top­ics that will be cov­ered.

The SFPA will be joined by rep­re­sen­ta­tives from a wide range of or­gan­i­sa­tions in­clud­ing: the Depart­ment of Agri­cul­ture, Food and the Ma­rine; Air Corps; BIM; FSAI; Naval Ser­vice; In­land Fish­eries Ire­land; Loughs Agency and the Depart­ment of Agri­cul­ture and Ru­ral Devel­op­ment North­ern Ire­land. They will pro­vide in­for­ma­tion and help with queries on the lat­est de­vel­op­ments and reg­u­la­tions as well as day to day mat­ters re­lat­ing to the in­dus­try in­clud­ing quota man­age­ment, food safety and trade.

Places are lim­ited. Any­one in­ter­ested in at­tend­ing is asked to reg­is­ter by email­ing events@sfpa.ie by to­mor­row (Thurs­day, May 12).

‘Ad­vances in tech­nol­ogy and pro­duc­tion as well as new EU reg­u­la­tions are lead­ing to sig­nif­i­cant changes in fish­ing in­dus­try prac­tice in Ire­land,’ said Su­san Steele, Chair of the SFPA.

‘ These events are a one-stop op­por­tu­nity for fish­er­men, pro­ces­sors and pro­duc­ers to learn more about these changes and have their queries on these or other im­por­tant is­sues re­lat­ing to the in­dus­try an­swered per­son­ally by ex­perts from the rel­e­vant or­gan­i­sa­tions.’ THERE is less than a week to go now un­til the Wick­low 1916 Pub­lic Col­lec­tions Day and the range of items to be looked at on the day prom­ise plenty of in­trigue and ex­cit­ment.

Mem­bers of the pub­lic have been busy sub­mit­ting reg­is­tra­tion forms de­tail­ing the won­der­ful trea­sures held by fam­i­lies and com­mu­ni­ties through­out the county ahead of the event, which will take place in County Build­ings next Tues­day, May 17, from 1 to 8 p.m.

All of these trea­sures and their ac­com­pa­ny­ing his­to­ries will be recorded at the Col­lec­tions Day and staff from the Li­brary Ser­vice, County Wick­low Ar­chives Ser­vice and the Her­itage Of­fice are thrilled that in­di­vid­u­als are will­ing to share their mem­o­ra­bilia.
