Bangor University - Staying alive, alive, alive-o

A project aimed at protecting the Irish Sea's £54 million shellfish industry has been launched in Wales. The Bangor University programme will involve academics from the Republic of Ireland and Wales, who will produce guidelines for future management of the fisheries. "Climate change is a very real threat to the Irish Sea's shellfish," said Shelagh Malham, research lecturer at Bangor's School of Ocean Sciences. "Increased incidences of disease and death in marine organisms have been linked to climatic alterations and the results of human activity. This project will assess the effects of those impacts in the Irish Sea and determine strategies to safeguard this important marine industry."
