Seafood sector gets three year plan

REPUBLIC OF IRELAND
Tuesday, July 27, 2010, 02:50 (GMT + 9)



Minister for Agriculture, Fisheries and Food Brendan Smith TD and Minister of State with responsibility for Fisheries Sean Connick TD on Friday launched Bord Iascaigh Mhara's (BIM) new three-year strategy (2010-12) and the Irish Seafood National Programme to 2013 for the Irish seafood industry.

Smith’s announcement of the two initiatives was delivered the same week as the launch of Food Harvest 2020, which focused on the food sector’s contribution to Ireland's economic recovery.

Both he and Connick attached "a high level of importance on BIM's transformation agenda for the seafood sector and on the associated seafood development measures contained in the Seafood National Programme," he stated.

The inclusive plan contains more than 70 detailed actions under four themes that strengthen the opportunities for the Irish seafood sector, including business development and innovation, knowledge and technology transfer, skills development and environment and sustainability.

BIM's new strategy document focuses on ways to deliver necessary developmental services to the swiftly changing seafood industry. Smith commended BIM for clearly establishing challenging targets for themselves for delivery by 2012, including the creation of 600 jobs, an extra EUR 50 million in value added seafood sales and greater differentiation of 40,000 tonnes of Irish seafood products costing EUR 120 million.

"The measures contained in this Programme are the tools to enable the Government and its agencies deliver on the objectives contained in the suite of seafood focused strategies, and places Ireland in a promising position to capture some of the undoubted opportunities which are emerging in both the international and domestic seafood markets," said Connick, focusing on the National Programme for the development of the Seafood Sector.

He said the proposed investments in the industry make up a significant vote of confidence by the government in the sector.

"The programme published today [Friday] envisages a significant state investment into the Irish seafood sector from now until the end of 2013. A dedicated allocation of EUR 6.5 million is being made available for the remainder of 2010 for the development of the aquaculture and processing sectors," he stated.

The programme also makes it easier to access capital from Bord Bia for marketing, from Enterprise Ireland for processing and from BIM for added value and modernisation and fisheries support, he explained.

"The launch of these two complementary initiatives to drive forward the development of a modern, high value added, sustainable and expanding seafood sector is an important event in delivering the real opportunities which exist for income generation and enhanced employment in our coastal communities," Connick concluded.

Under the three year plan, Irish fishing vessels may carry "green" certification for sustainable catches.

BIM told that the prospects for seafood globally and in Europe are extremely positive, especially in the medium to long term. En estimated additional 30 million tonnes of seafood will be needed by 2030 to meet the growing demand of a burgeoning human population, a growth in demand that Irish seafood companies could take advantage of.
