    If this ridiculous idea goes ahead this will destroy Irelands already fragile salmon stocks, probably within one year the sea lice explosion will happen and by then it will be too late, prevention of a problem is better than any cure.

    You must stop this crime against nature. It is an illusion to imagine that you will increase the economy by increasing the amount of farmed salmon using off-shore techniques. There is always a price to pay

    Again we see politicians trying to make a fast buck!!!!! They all should take a hard look at themselves and think about the future of whole angling in Ireland and not how much money one project will bring in. This project will destroy the fishing all along the coast. Why dont they read all the case studies that are readily available showing the destruction fish farms do.

    Ireland is know worldwide for its fishing of “wild” salmon in its rivers! this is how nature intended it to be. The fact that many fishermen around ireland and those who come in from different countries and pay a licence fee should be entitled to be heard and have a say! salmon farms off the coast is not what us fisherman who come year after year and pay good money for the fishing of the rivers want to see introduced!! “NO” to salmon farms that is not natures way…it will cause unforeseen problems to the wild salmon….

    This is a ridiculous plan as we all know the disastrous consequences of salmon farming to date. It must be stopped.

    As previously said Ireland is best known for its wild Salmon Fishing and outstanding natural beauty. These farms will quickly put a stop to that for sure. Effects on the economy if this happens. Irelands debt will double due to loss of tourism from these contaminated contraptions. No Farms…..

    Theb latest scientific report from leading scientists around the world states that Fish Farms are responsible for 39% of the decline of wils Salmon. If this goes ahead in Galway Bay, it will be the final nail in the coffin of our wild Salmon stocks. Same effect as the collapse of the Sea Trout in Connemara, What a disgrace.

    It is the best a chance to make some projects for the longer term and it’s a chance to be happy. I’ve learn this put up when I may I need to counsel you handful of attention-grabbing things and suggestions. You can can compose subsequent articles or reviews referring to this particular blog post. I wish to read more things something like it!

    Fish farm are just another way to destroy the natural world we have, all for a fast buck. The forestry commission polluted our rivers by planting thousands of acres of conifer trees at the top of the Glendun River. Then they drained thousands of acres of bog land with an attention to plant this as well, as a result the rivers flash floods damaging pools and groins we had built to improve habitat.
    We have seen the damage to white trout eaten alive by sea lice, what about the salmon smolts going to sea for the first time they just die. We need SALSE group to high light these issues and as many other conservationists to come on board to stop salmon fish farm destroying more of the Irish Coast Line and the fish that swim in the seas around the beautiful Island.

    BIM I do not accept your guarantee that this mamoth project will not impact on the sea environment of the conemmara coast line. We been waiting for far to long for the return of our sea trout to our local rivers to now jeopardise this with an industry which has question marks around it in many parts of the world. Keep you hands of our heritage, we would like to hand it to the next generation the way we found it. I suport the anti-fish farm campaign protest. There are non so blind as those who do not want to see! (politicans wake up and imagine the destruction that may well be unleashed upon our coastline because of your clouded judgement.

    The irish government are a disgrace and a bunch of money grabbers. These farms are proven to destroy wild fish stocks. Stocks are already fragile in this country and the wild salmon needs our help. We will fight these planned fish farms.

    What a great protest outside minister Simon Coveney`s office in Carrigaline, Cork, today, and as a member of Omagh Anglers Association and a stalwart of `No Salmon Nets In Irish Waters`(NSN), I was saddened to hear that the Irish Government are so blind to the FACTS, and to hear that they are trying to push this `Salmon farm` expansion plan, so as to supply China with `organic` Irish Salmon.
    In my view, not only are they destroying the wild Salmon, seatrout and other marine life, and in turn, damaging an important industry, Tourism, but they are willing to export this ‘TRASH’ food to the Chinese!
    We all know that China is over populated so is this a conspiracy to ‘cull’ the Chinese people with disease?
    Well that`s my 10p`s worth!!!

    If salmon farms at sea goes ahead, i will no longer go to Ireland fishing each year, as i have done for many years, this would be a national disgrace, shame on you for even considering such action.

    This is a disaster in the making. I’m not sure if its ignorance or greed or both but the Irish will probably go down in history as being responsible for exterminating the wild Atlantic salmon in Europe. If they go ahead with this insanity, I will boycott all Irish products for life.

    This will only spread more diseases that are already known to have started because of the farms that are in use right now. It will only get worse with this crap idea. No need for such thing. The higher ups need to quite trying to push crap that destroys our natural resources and only gains money for higher ups.

    We need to talk more about the bastards that want more money in their pockets and make our voices be heard world wide!!!!!!
