Press Release 3rd October 2006


The Eastern Regional Fisheries Board is delighted to announce the launch of it’s new look website: The site has recently been re-designed to allow customers to easily access information on a range of services offered by the Board.

Currently, the site receives a great deal of visitors accessing information on where to fish on Ireland’s east coast. Through strategic and targeted promotional activities, the Board hopes to increase the number of hits and to also encourage a wider audience to visit the site to access information on the work the Board carries out in relation to the environment, fisheries management, conservation of fisheries, angling, education and marketing.

Anglers and customers will now be able to access up to date information, angling maps and relevant publications at the click of a mouse. ‘We recognise the importance of providing a more user friendly website that can inform our customers of all the services we provide. The website is the ideal platform to disseminate relevant information to our stakeholders and to inform them of key issues and developments within the fisheries sector’ said Pat Doherty, Acting Chief Executive Officer, Eastern Regional Fisheries Board.

To cater for international customers, the site presently offers fishing information in French, German and Dutch. The site also includes angling regulations for game, coarse, sea and pike fishing. In addition, the site will soon be updated to include the 2006 pike and coarse conservation laws in 7 different languages: French, German, Lithuanian, Latvian, Polish, Russian and Hungarian.

So whether you are interested in landing a big pike on the great lakes in Monaghan or Cavan; wild brown trout fishing in the Boyne Valley; coarse fishing on the Royal and Grand Canals or sea fishing off the Wexford Coast, has all the information you need!
