Ireland to lose thousands of tonnes from fish quotas after EU investigation


Ireland is to have thousands of tonnes of fish deducted from its quota after an investigation into the State's implementation of the Common Fisheries Policy.

The Irish Times reports the findings of the European Commission found the country's system for controlling its waters "unsatisfactory".

The review came after an audit in Donegal found serious deficiencies in the Irish fishing control system.

Sanctions are expected to be issued, which a plan is to be devised to solve the issues in the fishing system.
