Description

Researchers from Queen’s University, Professor Paulo Prodohl and PhD student Jamie Magee presented their findings to a recent meeting in The Lakeside Hotel, Killaloe. The attendance included members of fishing clubs, Inland Fisheries Ireland, Tipperary County Council, the Lough Derg Science Group, the Irish Char Conservation Group and the Local Authority Waters and Communities Office. The main purpose of the meeting was to report on the result of genetic work carried out on more than 4,600 juvenile trout and 1,600 adult trout caught by anglers on the lake.

Professor Prodohl said this project was one of the biggest of its kind in Europe, thanks to the scale of the citizen science element. “There are not many projects in Europe or beyond that are of that order of magnitude.”
