Seascapes, Greystones Fishery, a Reflection with Marcus Connaughton

Friday, August 24th, 2012

Met up with Marcus Connaughton of RTE radio’s Seascapes one lovely sunny morning in Dunlaoghaire. We sat under the bandstand in front of the Royal Marine Hotel where I recalled my early experience of being introduced to the wonderful fishing that used to exist off Greystones, Co. Wicklow, how it fares today, and possible future directions for marine resource management.
