Dear Maritime Affairs and Fisheries,

Under the right of access to documents in the EU treaties, as developed in Regulation 1049/2001, I am requesting documents which contain the following information:

I downloaded Ireland's EMFF Operational Programme from here https://ec.europa.eu/fisheries/cfp/emff/... which contains the following statement on Page 83,

"4.2 Description of the action plan for the development, competitiveness and
sustainability of small-scale coastal fishing There are 1,313 vessels in the Irish SSCF and they employ 1,528 people. In 2014 the Minister for Agriculture, Food and the Marine announced the establishment of an Inshore Fisheries Forum initiative , comprising 6 Regional Inshore Fisheries Forums (RIFFs) feeding into a National Inshore Fisheries Forum (NIFF) to facilitate stakeholder engagement on fisheries inside the 6 mile limit. These groups contributed to the development of an action plan which focused on 3 areas. The full action plan is attached to this document."

The full action plan does not seem to be attached to the document I have downloaded? The full action plan is not listed as an accompanying document on page 166.

Where is the "Full action plan" document please?

Yours faithfully,

Jim Pettipher
