BIM is the Irish State Agency responsible for developing seafood in Ireland.
BIM’s vision is to lead the Irish Seafood sector to become an international leader in high value differentiated products that satisfy the growing demand for healthy, safe, responsibly and sustainably produced seafood. RS Standards team has been delivering services to BIM for well over a decade including technical, management and strategic advice and services on BIM’s Certified Quality Aquaculture Scheme and EU organic regulations for aquaculture.
RS Standards is also undertaking the national review and regional updates of the Coordinated Local Aquaculture Management Systems (CLAMS) in operation in Ireland and bringing these in line with newly introduced marine planning policy. CLAMS is a bottom up approach for the management of aquaculture in shared waters providing for collective bay management for sustainable aquaculture operation and development and for demonstration of good environmental practices to communities, stakeholders and regulators.
