On behalf of the Members, Officers & Staff of NIFCA, can I give best wishes to everyone for a safe & hopefully happy & prosperous 2021. Challenging times still lie ahead of course with covid, at least pending the full roll out of a vaccine, but there is hopefully now light at the end of the tunnel.
With a new Fisheries Act in place we enter a brave new world post Brexit and with a Trade Deal thankfully also in place, we will see over the next few weeks how trade to & from the continent will proceed & hopefully settle satisfactorily, particularly in relation to lobster & crab which are so important to our local fishing industry.
Our officers will be continuing with their work in the district & with the scientific & research work which forms the foundation for the best possible management & maintenance of sustainable stocks in the future.
We look forward to having contact with you as much as possible in the months which lie ahead & whilst our office must remain closed to the public, please don’t hesitate to speak to an officer, telephone or email us if we can be of any help or assistance.
