FIE has welcomed Minister for Agriculture, Fisheries and Food, Simon Coveney, TD, decision to refuse the Federation of Irish Fishermen's [FIF] request to allow the commercial fishing of sea bass in the Celtic Sea.

The Minister has confirmed to FIE that he is ‘not proposing changes at this time to the current arrangements in relation to bass fishing.'

The confirmation comes after FIE had requested documentation relating to the advice the Minister had received on the 2009 request.
