The Irish Department of Mowi have first in 2006 and again in 2014 sent an application for a fishing licence, which has not yet been progressed, states a legal letter that the Sunday Independent has gained access to.
The application is for fishing at the Lough Swilly site in Co Donegal, northwestern Irland. Mowi states in the legal letter, sent by law firm Matheson, that their ability to operate at the site has been affected by the delay.
Furthermore, the letter also asks the department to outline the reason behind the delay.
The letter also claims that the department has not yet progressed the application.
