Development of new modern fish farm
Inland Fisheries Ireland is progressing its plans to develop a new modern fish farm facility in Tipperary, based on Recirculating Aquaculture System or ‘RAS’ technology.
It has placed a Prior Information Notice (PIN) on the Official Journal of the European Union (OJEU).
The new fish farm will be located in Roscrea, Co. Tipperary and the project will shortly enter the design and planning permission phase. It is expected that the new fish farm will become operational in 2026.
In the intervening period, Inland Fisheries Ireland expects to continue its current fish farm operations as normal, supplying brown trout and rainbow trout to its angling stakeholders.
