#FermoyWeir - Inland Fisheries Ireland (IFI) is consulting with Cork County Council regarding emergency works required at Fermoy Weir.

Low water levels, damage to the weir cap below the bridge and a strong run of salmon on the Munster Blackwater have resulted in large numbers of migrating fish becoming trapped below the weir.

IFI protection officers are closely monitoring the situation to minimise the risk to migrating fish. It's anticipated that the council will begin work to create a natural channel to direct fish towards the fish ladder.

IFI will advise stakeholders on the Munster Blackwater once the scope of works and timeframe is agreed.
