The Northern Irish Fish Producers Organisation (N.I.F.P.O.) has members with fishing vessels in the ports of Ardglass, Kilkeel and Portavogie. Funding has been awarded to NIFPO which enables Jason Parker (pictured below), a Health and Safety professional to provide expert advice both offshore and onshore to NIFPO and its members. Jason hails from Ardglass and is an experienced skipper and ex fisherman of 25 years, currently working in the offshore wind sector as a QHSE specialist. The focus of his work for NIFPO is to enable the fishing fleet to achieve the ILO 188 standard.
This project was financed by Ørsted as a Voluntary Donation in recognition of the co-operation received from the Northern Irish fishermen during the construction and operation of the Walney Extension offshore wind farm.
