IFA AQUACULTURE ADMIT POTENTIAL DAMAGE TO MARINE IF THEY DO NOT GET MORE STATE GRANTS

It appears that communication on one side of IFA Aquaculture office up in Dublin has broken down with the other side according to Ritchie Flynn and Jerry Gallagher’s press statements in this months edition of the Irish Skipper. One says ‘salmon farms withstood unprecedented storms’ while the other seeks €5m more state funding “to deal with the severe weather battering suffered over the past 2 months they want to know they are facing into those storms having done everything they can to put in place the strongest, safest and most secure farming equipment to protect their stocks and ensure minimal damage to farms or the immediate surrounding environment”.
What damage could that be? Tell BIM as argue there is no potential marine environment a damage when FISSTA question their EIS on new applications. Time for IFA top brass to confess to Minister Coveney that salmon farming is not worth the food scare risk to the rest of their hard won export and Harvest 2020 plan.
