McConalogue announces Brexit Voluntary Tie-up Scheme for fishing vessels to improve quota availability for vessels who continue fishing

Minister for Agriculture, Food and the Marine Charlie McConalogue today announced a 2022 Brexit Voluntary Temporary Fishing Vessel Tie-up Scheme for the polyvalent and beam trawl fleets. This scheme is an extension of the 2021 Tie-up scheme, with some modifications, and will help mitigate the impacts of quota cuts for 2022 arising from the Brexit Trade and Cooperation Agreement.
