Depletion of Inland Fish Stocks and Impact of Estuary Poaching: Inland Fisheries Ireland
Dr. Byrne is speaking of how efficiently Inland Fisheries Ireland works. I referred to taking the objectives the agency has set itself as key performance indicators. He should be able to provide figures on what was the starting position compared to the current position. This would allow us to decide whether the agency is hitting its targets. Inland Fisheries Ireland could be working very efficiently without hitting the targets it has set as the targets could have been unrealistic. This data must be available to demonstrate whether these key performance indicators are being met.
