Licensing for fish farming has become more sophisticated, allowing it to cater for the ever-increasing number of activities taking place on Ireland’s foreshores. We can help you successfully renew your existing licence or get a new licence through:
- Our team of Regional Aquaculture Resource Development Officers
- Our network
Get in touch with one of our team of Regional Aquaculture Resource Development Officers if you need information on funding for projects that promote:
- Knowledge, innovation and technology in aquaculture
- Sustainable growth of output, value and employment in aquaculture
Group marking of sites (SUMS)
Marking the boundaries of your site is a requirement of your aquaculture licence. We can help if you want those boundaries to be included in a unified marking scheme, which provides a visual guide for those navigating the harbour. These are known as Special Unified Marking Schemes (SUMS).
Our Regional Aquaculture Development Officers can work with you from the initial design of the marking scheme, through to the specification and installation the new marks. They can also give you information on the funding that may be available to help with this work.
Benefits of SUMS:
- Your site will be marked effectively with highly specified marks
- Maintenance costs are low as there are fewer marks of a longer lifespan
