What are FIPs?

FIPs are schemes to improve the sustainability of fisheries. They involve all those involved in the catching and sale of fish working together to improve the level of the fish stock, the environmental impact and the management of the fishery. FIPs also help consumers to make informed choices when purchasing seafood. By making these informed choices you can support employment in sustainable production and processing operations.

What FIPS have been set up?

“A number of Irish Fishery Improvement Projects or FIPs have been established. Those that are already up and running include Brown Crab, Prawn, Whitefish, Hake, Whiting, Haddock, Saithe and Albacore Tuna.”
