Displaying items by tag: 2,745 inspections

#Inspections - Over the last year, more than 2,745 inspections of boats were carried out, the Sea-Fisheries Protection Authority (SFPA) said, with 10 vessels detained by the Navy for breaching rules.

The Belfast Telegraph writes that the agency said infringements at sea ranged from the under recording of catches to having incorrect equipment on board.

Susan Steele, SFPA chairwoman, said: "The SFPA is committed to playing its part in ensuring a strong future for the Irish fishing industry through the detection of all illegal fishing.

"This year, with the support of the Naval Service, we prioritised the implementation of the new landing obligation, which effectively bans the discarding of fish overboard and was introduced for pelagic fisheries in 2015.

"The generally low level of non-compliance reflects the genuine effort on the part of many fishermen to comply with the regulations."
