fish processing

The Irish Fish Producers' Organisation says Killybegs will be severely hit by new restrictions being imposed by Russia.

The one-year ban will affect all meat, milk and dairy imports from the EU, US, Australia and some other countries.

It's a response to sanctions imposed by Europe over events in the Ukraine - and the move that will affect over 200 million euro of Irish exports.
