Inland Fisheries Ireland carries out applied fisheries research to assess the conservation status of Ireland's fish species, to monitor fisheries stocks in inland and coastal waters and to explore environmental issues that have an impact on fish and their habitats.

The Research Division also provides scientific advice to our parent department, the Department of the Environment, Climate and Communications.
