Department of Agriculture, Food and the Marine
Fishery Harbour Centres
389. To ask the Minister for Agriculture, Food and the Marine if he plans to visit each of the fishery harbours under the remit of his Department before the end of quarter 1, 2023; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [2496/23]
In my capacity as Minister of Agriculture, Food and the Marine, I have made visiting farms, piers and food businesses in all counties a key priority of my tenure. I will continue to visit coastal communities in 2023. These communities are the bedrock of our seafood sector. I am finalising my diary for Q1 of 2023 but I look forward engaging with these communities in the weeks ahead.
