Please note that the regulations and bye-laws are subject to change. Contact your local Inland Fisheries Ireland office for information on individual rivers. All salmon rod licence holders must affix a gill tag to all retained salmon (any size), or sea trout (over 40cm).

Major Protest March Against Salmon Farms

Major Protest March Against Salmon Farms
December 15th in Carrigaline

On the 15th December 2012 NSFAS (No Salmon Farms At Sea), FISSTA, Save Bantry Bay, Save Galway Bay and Friends of the Irish Environment, along with other local and national organisations, will be holding a protest march in Carrigaline against the proposals for the further development of salmon farms around our coast.

We will be congregating at Carrigaline Secondary School at 12.00pm and march from there to Minister Simon Coveney’s constituency office. Minister Coveney has been a strong supporter of the aquaculture industry and we must let him know that his support is misguided and will result in catastrophe not only for our stocks of wild salmon and sea trout but also for the communities and local businesses that depend on there very existence. This is an appeal to all like minded individuals and organisations to show your support for our cause and your opposition for this proposed blight on our coastline.

Please inform your clubs, friends and families and turn up on the day with banners or placards. Let’s give Mr Coveney something to think about over his Christmas holidays.
