Written answers (Question to Agriculture)

The Sea-Fisheries Protection Authority (SFPA) is statutorily responsible for the collation of data on catch and landing records for sea-fisheries including the mussel seed fishery. The SFPA is independent in the performance of its functions.

I will forward the Deputy's question to the SFPA for attention as appropriate.
