Collaborative Sustainable Innovation

co-designing small-scale fisheries governance approaches


The Irish Islands Marine Resources Organisation is a national organisation made up of Irish islanders fighting to bring to the attention of decision makers the needs of island communities across the country on marine related matters. IIMRO works in partnership with LIFE (Low Impact Fishers Europe, the first pan-European platform representing small-scale fishermen) and the European Small Islands Federation. IIMRO are directly engaged with the European and Irish policy environments on behalf of small scale island fishers, and are seeking to design and establish co-managed, seasonal fisheries zones for the small scale fishing industry around the four island groups of Donegal, Mayo, Galway and Cork off the west coast of Ireland.
