Paal Janson has been elected as the Chairman of the Irish Marine Federation (IMF), the trade body representing marine leisure interests in Ireland.

In one of his first roles, Janson (43) has framed the IMFs submission to the Government's Marine Spatial Plan, a proposed piece of legislation for the Irish coast that may yet impact on how marine leisure businesses operate on the foreshore, including a necklace of 60 marinas around Ireland.

Janson, who is the General Manager of Ireland's largest marina at Dun Laoghaire on Dublin Bay, is a Nautical Science Graduate from Cork CIT.

We've got a favour to ask

More people are reading Afloat.ie than ever thanks to the power of the internet but we're in stormy seas because advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news sites, we haven’t put up a paywall because we want to keep our marine journalism open.

Afloat.ie is Ireland's only full–time marine journalism team and it takes time, money and hard work to produce our content.

So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

If everyone chipped in, we can enhance our coverage and our future would be more secure. You can help us through a small donation. Thank you.
