Northern Ireland PFD Initiative

Funding from DARD and DCAL through the European Fisheries Fund, Seafish and Asda Supermarket was managed by Seafish Northern Ireland to arrange safety training, and provide life jackets, to over 1800 fishermen and aquaculture workers in Northern Ireland.

This project, recently completed, involved a wide range of organisations including the Fishermen's Mission, the RNLI, MCA, the Fishing Industry Safety Group, DARD, DCAL, the Loughs Agency and Aquaculture Initiative and fishermen's organisations. At events across Northern Ireland, fishermen and aquaculture workers were provided with grant-aided compact lifejackets and safety training to ensure their proper use.
