Blog: McConalogue announces Brexit Voluntary Tie-up Scheme for fishing vessels to improve quota availability for vessels who continue fishing – Gov.ie

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. The 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. The scheme delivers on a recommendation of the Report of the Seafood Task Force – ‘Navigating Change’ (October 2021) and is proposed for funding under the EU Brexit Adjustment Reserve.
