North Mayo Oyster Development Co – Op
We are a small native oyster co op. We run an non profit organisation in Blacksod Bay off the Mullet Peninsula. We manage the native flat oyster fishery through on going survey work, water and oyster bio toxin sampling and implementation of our management plan. We work closely with the National Marine Institute, BIM, NPWS and other state bodies. While the numbers of boats allowed to fish is limited by Inland Fisheries Ireland issuing limited numbers of dredging permits the fishery is very important economically to the small part time fisher men and women of west Mayo.
