  • Description:
    During 1972, the Irish fishing industry continued its measured but steady growth. The value of landings reached US$17.4 million. Herring accounted for much of the increase over 1971. Herring, salmon, and lobster products contributed to record fishery exports valued at US$18.6 million. Imports also rose and were worth US$8.7 million; fish meal and canned salmon were the main items. Entry into the European Economic Community (EC) required a reorientation of industry goals and changes in regulations. Although some opposition was voiced against entry, advantages in marketing and other areas are believed to outweigh possible competition inside the Irish 6- to 12-mile fishing zone. Outlook for the future is for continued expansion and higher exports. Foreseen difficulties are insufficient fleet personnel and increased competition in nearby waters from foreign fishermen.
