There are currently 12 State Bodies that fall under the aegis of my Department. Of these, I have made appointments to those Boards listed in the following table since I became Minister for Agriculture, Food and the Marine.

While the remuneration quoted is payable to all Board members, there are some who do not avail of this money.
