More false news and anti fishing industry propaganda from the Irish media

If you read yesterday’s IFSA article ‘The tail wagging the dog’ then you’ll be amused to see the version of the same story that the Irish Examiner is feeding the general public today (see below).

This same story has been regurgitated many times in many different Irish newspapers over the past couple of years and it arises now again to coincide with the SFPA/EU announcement over the new rule on weighing of fish.

Despite continually claiming that there were “irregularities found” not one newspaper has ever mentioned that in the 2018 EU / Ireland audit that NOT A SINGLE LEGAL CHARGE was ever brought against any fish processor by the EU, Department of Marine, or the SFPA.

Is there even one newspaper in this country that has the balls to print the truth instead of this anti industry propaganda?
