For this week’s Ireland on the Fly podcast, renowned fisheries scientist Ken Whelan explains the River Life in Ireland courtesy of a webinar from Limerick’s European Green Leaf Award and over the next thirty minutes or so, Ken places Ireland’s unique aquatic heritage in context.

He introduces us to the underwater animals and plants you can find as well as the threats they are facing.

“Look at the river in total, along the river bank, the canopy, the river corridor, and the interaction going on, rather just the river itself,” Ken says and advises what we — as citizens, farmers, volunteer scientists, and anglers — can do to help keep our rivers and streams healthy and productive.
