Bord Iascaigh Mhara (Irish pronunciation: [ˈbˠɔɾˠdˠ ˈi̠əsˠkəɣ ˈwaɾˠa], meaning "Sea Fish Board"; or BIM "Irish Sea Fisheries Board") is the agency of the Irish state with responsibility for developing the Irish marine fishing and aquaculture industries.
Originally established under the Sea Fisheries Act, 1952, the organisation serves to provide resources to the fishing industry, particularly in aquaculture, as well as providing an interface to the consumer for information and promotion of seafood. Historically it operated boatyards in Baltimore, Dingle and Killybegs.
