BIM Water Stewardship Support Programme

Bord Iascaigh Mhara (BIM) is running a National Water Stewardship Programme, developed specifically for the Irish Seafood Industry.

The programme aims to provide seafood processing sites with a structured approach to managing water on site, as well as support at each step as they progress on their journey to better water stewardship.

Save Water, Reduce Costs

Following a successful pilot of this programme last year, seafood processors like Irish Fish Canners, Kish Fish, Norfish and Goatsbridge have achieved significant efficiencies and cost savings.

Programme Benefits 

Feedback from pilot sites indicates the key benefits from this programme include:

Programme Overview 

The programme is anchored on the “Five Steps to Better Water Stewardship”, a framework that provides an actionable approach to rolling out water stewardship across all sites. Throughout this programme, your site will receive support at each step as you progress on your journey to better water stewardship.

What do Seafood Processors think of the Programme?

“This programme has helped us reinforce our commitment to sustainability on site. Irish Fish Canners is now recognised as a leader in Water Stewardship on a National level” – Nadine Bonner, Irish Fish Canners

“The metering and monitoring system that was implemented as part of this support programme has been crucial to the identification of water optimisation opportunities and water savings of up to €20,000 on site” – Damian O’Meara, Kish Fish
