The final decision on the future of the 456-hectare organic fish farm falls to the minister for Agriculture.
The proposed site is just over one mile from Inis Oírr and about four miles from the Clare coast and would accommodate 15,000 tons of salmon each year.
Deputy Michael McNamara is now calling on B.I.M. to withdraw its application for an aquaculture license for the salmon farm. He said, “A significant difference of opinion has emerged between B.I.M. and I.F.I., whose statutory function is the protection, management and conservation of the island’s fisheries resource.”
