Cork-based Green Rebel Marine has announced a new strategic partnership with Fisheries Liaisons Ltd. The partnership aims to support communication with the wider marine and fishing community as development of offshore wind farms picks up pace.

Fisheries Liaisons Ltd has been a strong supporter of fishing communities across the island of Ireland in their dealings with other off-shore operators. The company engages communities fishing in Irish coastal waters ahead of the arrival of new entrants to the offshore market.  In recent years, the company has evolved into the main stakeholder engagement partner for offshore wind project developers and the fishing community at large.
 
The relationship between Fisheries Liaisons Limited and Green Rebel Marine aims to ensure coastal communities are consulted with in advance of any work, and fully informed of the latest developments involving wind farm operations. Fisheries Liaison Limited has three full time staff, who will be based from the headquarters of Green Rebel Marine in Crosshaven, Co Cork.

Pearse Flynn of Green Rebel Marine says: “Having come from a fishing community, I really appreciate the importance of the industry to livelihoods around the coast. The roll out of offshore wind will cross with the fishing industry at a number of points, and this new relationship with Fisheries Liaisons Ltd will mean that fishermen and their representatives organisations will be kept in the loop at all times. We aim to create a one-stop-shop between the fishing sector, their communities and the energy companies looking to place wind farms in Irish territorial waters. This new sector will create jobs and secure the future of our coastal communities.”
 
Fishery Liaisons aims to develop good communication between the developers and the fishing communities, enabling them to co-exist throughout the project lifecycle. This collaboration with Green Rebel Marine will enable the team to continue to grow its expertise and expand its service offering well into the future.
 
Mark O’Reilly of Fisheries Liaisons Ltd says: “This is an opportunity for us to grow our team and provide a better service to the stakeholders concerned with this developing industry. We can now expand our presence on the ground and provide even more efficient support. Joining forces with Green Rebel Marine provides the platform we need to safeguard our fishing communities whilst enabling the development of offshore renewable energy towards a greener future for all. With energy companies now looking to place infrastructure at sea, we need to ensure that there is advance engagement at every turn, and that the fishing communities know they can rely on us to both listen and to convey their opinions in a timely and meaningful way.”
