Fisheries Minister Michelle McIlveen has re-appointed Terry Jarvis as Chairperson of the Northern Ireland Fishery Harbour Authority (NIFHA).

The Authority has a statutory responsibility for improving, managing and maintaining the three fishery harbours and harbour estates of Ardglass, Kilkeel, and Portavogie and for operating the facilities which are provided at these harbours.

This re-appointment will be effective from the 26 June 2016 and will be for a further four year period.

Announcing the re-appointment, Michelle McIlveen said: “The Fishery Harbour Authority plays an important role in the management and maintenance of Northern Ireland’s three main fishing harbours at Ardglass, Kilkeel and Portavogie.

“Terry has been very effective in leading the Authority over the last four years, resulting in significant progress on EU-funded improvements for the three ports and I welcome his willingness to serve another term to assist the Authority in its continuing work.”
