Joint Oireachtas Committee on Agriculture, Food and the Marine

Aquaculture Industry: Discussion

Ms Teresa Morrissey:

Sector by sector means the different sectors within aquaculture itself. There is shellfish, finfish, and in a European context there is on-land and recirculated aquaculture systems also. There is no coherence on a sector-by-sector basis with EU policy and, therefore, with national policy because there are so many different legislative instruments, particularly at a European level, which are transposed domestically, covering various sectors. For instance in the European context, some of our legislation relates to animal health while more comes from the environmental side.
