The Agriculture Minister will establish a taskforce to address issues in the fisheries industry.
The Killybegs Fishermen’s Organisation say Ireland got a bad deal following Brexit, claiming there is no fairness from Europe.
Ireland has seen its catching quotas reduced by 15 percent, with an estimated value of 42 million euro every year to the economy.
This is because the EU is redistributing which member states can catch fish in Irish waters, and how much of it.
Sean O’Donoghue is the CEO of the Killybegs Fihermen’s Organisation and he says the Brexit deal was bad for the Irish fishing sector.
He told Midwest News that Ireland is paying a disproportionate amount of the EU’s transfers to the UK.
