The Marine Institute, a semi State body, wish to invite tenders for the supply of Expertise in Ornithology Monitoring for the period to 30th April 2020. The operational aspects of this contract will be managed by Marine Environment and Food Safety Services (MEFSS).
The aquaculture industry is an important economic activity on all coasts of Ireland. A significant proportion of the activity occurs within, or in proximity to, Natura 2000 sites which are designated areas under the EU Habitats and Birds Directives.
These sites have a special status in that the features (habitats and species) for which they are designated must, in the long term, not be allowed to deteriorate. On foot of a full assessment of oyster culture using bags and trestles in intertidal areas in Dungarvan Harbour SPA , it was concluded that the negative impact of aquaculture on the distribution of some bird species could not be discounted. In light of this, suppliers responding to the competition are invited to submit proposals to carry out monitoring of the effects of this mitigation measure on specific bird species.
