Podcast: Leading The World In Aquaculture

Ireland is at the forefront of aquaculture where it has made world-leading advances. The industry is vital to the country and to seafood supplies. That is the view of this week’s interviewee on the Marine Times Podcast - Richard Donnelly, Development and Innovation Manager at Bord Iascaigh Mhara, the national seafood development agency.

There is growing public awareness of the importance of aquaculture and fish farming, he says. BIM is running several programmes, including in schools and with Fáilte Ireland, about how important the sector is in providing a sustainable seafood supply. He talks to Marine Times Deputy Editor, Tom MacSweeney, about aquaculture development and the third annual programme this October to drive more opportunity and innovation within the sector.
