Salmon farm row

SALMON farm opponents are calling on Agriculture Minister Simon Coveney (right) to halt a licence application for a farm in Galway Bay.

The fisheries board, Bord Iascaigh Mhara, has submitted an application for the construction of a fish farm in the bay.

However opponents of the farms want the minister to commission an independent scientific evaluation of the risk to migrating salmon from sea-lice.
