This new investment from 21 Irish seafood processing companies is projected to
generate over 142 additional jobs within the sector.
The companies are based in Wexford, Dublin, Cork, Donegal, Galway, Louth and Kerry.
The 15 and a half million euro investment by these firms, is supported by grants of 3.2 million under the EU co-funded Seafood Processing Business Investment Scheme.
It's also expected to help increase sales in the industry to the tune of 44 million euro, over the next three years.
