Advice on Importing Ornamental Aquatic species.
Advice from the Marine Institute on Importing Ornamental Aquatic species.
Do you intend to purchase ornamental cold water and tropical fish, molluscs or crustaceans species from suppliers outside the Republic of Ireland?
Are you and your supplier aware of the health certification requirements to import cold water and tropical ornamental aquatic species into Ireland?
Registration of Ornamental Importers is a requirement under Council Directive 2006/88/EC which was transposed into Irish law by the European Communities (Health of Aquaculture Animals and Products) Regulations 2008 (SI No. 261 of 2008) and European Communities (Health of Aquaculture Animals and Products (Amendment) Regulations 2010 (S.I. No. 398 of 2010) and 2011 (S.I. No. 430 of 2011).
