What We Do
Our purpose is to make measurable and sustainable impact on the revenue and livelihood of inshore fishing folk. We will achieve this by:
NEEDS AND WELLBEING
Being focused on the needs and wellbeing of boat owners and their crews involved in inshore fishing and nothing else.
Bringing our members insights to policy makers to ensure our members can compete effectively to sustain their families and to enrich rural Ireland.
Selling together to ensure that our members capture as much of the value they create, as it is possible to do.
Advocating on behalf of our members, for support and resources from State and European Institutions charged with supporting rural development and a sustainable industry.
Buying together to reduce the cost of fishing and improve the quality of life of our members by bringing them advice and best practice in terms of running their businesses.
