Annual Aquaculture Production and Employment Survey

BIM conducts an annual survey in which all aquaculture companies are requested to submit economic and operational details for the year.

The data is grouped by species and submitted to the EU in aggregated format so your company or you as an individual cannot be identified. The information collected helps to inform European aquaculture policy. 

How do we collect the data?

The 2020 data is collected for each species in the following survey forms:

Form A

Aquaculture Census Survey 2020 (pdf 906Kb)   

Form B‌

Form B: Annual Economic Assessment of Irish Aquaculture for the year 2020 (pdf 468Kb)   

Forms may be:


  • printed, completed off-line and returned to:

    John (Herbie) Dennis
    Bord Iascaigh Mhara
    Clogheen Road
    Co. Cork

For information contact John (Herbie) Dennis on (01) 2144101, 087 2334496 or email

Your involvement in the survey is much appreciated.

The data is collected in accordance with regulation (EC) No 199/2008
