Minister for Fisheries and Food Brendan Smith and Minister of State Sean Connick have met one of the world’s biggest seafood companies to discuss the potential for expansion of the industry in Ireland, the Irish Times reports.
Marine Harvest, which presently employs 250 people in Ireland and 5,000 worldwide, hopes to produce between 10 and 12,000 tonnes of premium salmon for export from its fish farms in Donegal, Mayo, Cork and Kerry in 2012.
The company sees potential to double its production and employment in Ireland over the next 10 years and discussed with the ministers how the marine infrastructure can best accommodate this.
“I see enormous potential for the expansion of both finfish and shellfish aquaculture," said Minister Connick.
