There is inequity in the quotas Irish fishermen receive from the EU and this needs to change.

That's according to Mayo Deputy Rose Conway Walsh, who says the country has not got its fair share of fish for decades.

The Sinn Fein TD has joined fellow party members in Brussels today, as they make their case to the EU alongside a delegation of Irish fishermen.

The representatives will meet members of the EU parliament committee on fisheries, and officials from the directorate-general for maritime affairs and fisheries over two days.

They will be raising concerns about Ireland’s relatively small share of the fishing quota within its own exclusive economic zone.

Deputy Rose Conway Walsh told Midwest Radio's John Morley that the way EU law is being implemented is having a negative impact on the fishing sector here.
