7.6 Fishing

The Barrow, Nore and Suir are historically renowned as premier salmon and coarse fishing rivers in Ireland although salmon fishing no longer takes place on the River Barrow.  The Kings River is also an important fishing river.  Fishing remains an important natural resource for the county which has potential for development in its own right and as a resource for tourism development.  Fishing as a resource can assist in the development of tourism within the county and in rural diversification and appropriate angling-related tourism, fish farming and mariculture will be encouraged.  The Council will liaise with and facilitate the Southern Fisheries Board in this regard.
