Fishery Improvement Projects
All targeted fishing for crab is undertaken with pots or creels set in ‘strings’ of 25-100. The pots are composed of a metal frame supporting a wide mesh netting. Entrances are designed mainly as so called “soft-eyes” which consists of a flap of netting which the crab can push upwards as it enters the pot and which then closes. Some pots may have hard eye tope entrances and may have a double chamber. However such variations are exceptions in the targeted crab fishery and are more likely to be used locally in the lobster fishery. Gear is baited with a variety of fish species and is soaked for 24-72hrs although exceptionally, during for example poor weather, they may be soaked for longer periods of time.
The Celtic Sea Herring Management Advisory Committee (CSHMAC) is implementing a Fishery Improvement Project for Celtic Sea Herring. CSHMAC is working with The Marine Institute (Ireland’s fisheries scientific body) on a rebuilding plan. The plan is being developed over the summer of 2018 and will be presented to the Pelagic Advisory Council in October.

RESEARCH & DEVELOPMENT
European Space Agency (ESA) and AquaEye: Marine Applications Ltd has just completed our latest project with ESA AquaEye. The project involves the installation of sensors on participating certified aquaculture production units which transmit data in relation to water quality through satellite and GPRS technology to a cloud-based software platform Users are then able to access the appropriate data based through a user friendly GUI.
