As previously reported to the Deputy, IFI is currently carrying out a review of relevant inland fisheries bye-laws in force for 10 years or more and their continued application and the Conservation of and Prohibition on Sale of Coarse Fish Bye-Law No. 806 of 2006 and the Conservation of Pike Bye-Law No. 809 of 2006 are being examined as part of this work.

The management of any species of fish in Lough Ree on indeed any fishery within the state is an operational matter for Inland Fisheries Ireland (IFI) in which neither I nor my Department have any function.

Inland Fisheries Ireland (IFI) has established a specific email address for queries from Oireachtas members so that queries in relation to operational matters can be addressed promptly, in line with IFI’s objective to deliver services to the highest standards. The email address is oireachtas@fisheriesireland.ie.
