Following a wonderful talk by Colette O’ Flynn on Tuesday night last, MulkearLIFE / Inland Fisheries Ireland are delighted to announce details of the final illustrated talk taking place as part of the February 2013 series of talks.

On Tuesday next, 26th February Mr. Eamon Cusack will give a talk entitled "Building Partnerships for Sustainable Fisheries on the Lower Shannon".

During his time with the Shannon Regional Fisheries Board Mr. Cusack encountered many of the challenges facing fisheries management. He has hands-on experience of policy development, strategic management, change management, enforcement, development and rehabilitation. He was a Ministerial appointee to the Central Fisheries Board (2000 to 2010) where he had oversight and input to national fisheries policy. Since leaving the service in 2010, he has been actively involved in stakeholder engagement and management, fisheries development and protection. His talk will focus on Mr. Cusack’s recent work to bring together anglers and the ESB to provide to build effective and durable partnerships for sustainable fisheries. His talk should be of particular interest to local anglers and anyone with a general interest in conservation management and planning.
