Ireland

In 2004, landings of fish (quota and non-quota species) by Irish registered vessels totalled almost 308 425 metric tons (mt) with a total value of EUR 141.5 million. In 2005, total volume was 284 067 mt with a corresponding value of EUR 169 million.

In 2005, Irish seafood exports amounted to nearly 200 000 mt valued at EUR 354 million. At this time the seafood sector faced many challenges particularly in respect of supply. This resulted in exports declining by a substantial 62 100 mt or 24% in volume from the 2004 figure. However the decline in value was only 7%.
