Eamon Ryan TD, Minister with responsibility for inland fisheries in Ireland, has announced that Inland Fisheries Ireland (IFI) is to lead on the Annacotty weir fish passage improvement project. IFI has identified Annacotty weir on the lower Mulkear river as a significant barrier to the free movement of several fish species including Atlantic salmon. IFI will progress this project in collaboration with various state agencies and key stakeholders through the multiple phases involved in improvement of fish passage at the weir.

This important role for IFI is a reflection of their involvement in highlighting barrier issues as an integral partner in the AMBER project and illustrates that a project like AMBER will continue to have impacts well beyond the end of the project!
