    • Stocks of Nephrops norvegicus off the south coast of Ireland

      Gibson, F A (Department of Agriculture and Fisheries (Fisheries Division), 1967)
      Nephrops norvegicus is also known popularly as the Dublin Bay Prawn or Norway Lobster. The stocks of prawns in depths down to 60 fathoms (109m) have been studies since 1956, off the south of Ireland, from Mine Head, Co. Waterford, to the Kenmare River, Co. Kerry. The present paper is concerned with data obtained from the research vessel Cú Feasa, together with other samples collected from commercial fishing boats, during the years 1963 to 1966 inclusive.
    • Strain selection in the edible brown seaweed Alaria esculenta: Genetic fingerprinting and hybridization studies under laboratory conditions

      Kraan, S; Guiry, M D (Marine Institute, 2000)
      The genus Alaria presently includes 12 species, 11 of which are located in the cold temperate North Pacific and only one is found in the North Atlantic (Widdowson, 1971). The North Atlantic species Alaria esculenta has two northern forms, A. esculenta forma grandifolia and forma pylaii (Lüning, 1990). The study presented here will concentrate on the genetic fingerprinting of Alaria esculenta, the most common North Atlantic species, and hybridisation of members of the Laminariaceae.
    • The strategic importance of the fishing sector to rural communities and Ireland: a case study of the Rossaveal Region, Co. Galway

      Meredith, D. (Marine Institute, 1999)
      Fishing and ancillary industries are commonly perceived to be of significant social and economic value by virtue of their geographic location. Past socio-economic studies of fisheries and related industries largely confined themselves to analysing demographic statistics and relating these to official port fish landings data and descriptions of processing and ancillary industries. Despite these efforts, a clear picture of why and how fisheries are of socio-economic significance has not yet been achieved. As a consequence there is little de-tailed understanding of how ecological, legislative and market related changes impact on fisheries dependent communities. This study of the Rossaveal Region was funded by Marine Institute in an attempt to assess the importance of demersal, shellfish and pelagic fisheries to peripheral Irish communities.
    • Strategic Review and the Feasibility of Seaweed Aquaculture in Ireland

      Werner, A.; Clarke, D.; Kraan, S. (Marine Institute, 2004)
      The National Seaweed Forum, commissioned by the Minister for the Marine and Natural Resources in 1999, evaluated the current status of the Irish Seaweed Industry, investigated the potential uses of seaweeds and identified measures to be undertaken for developing the different industrial sectors. Seaweed aquaculture was identified as a key area for the development of the Irish Seaweed Industry to meet growing market demands and to create attractive and high–skilled jobs in peripheral communities in coastal areas. Following these recommendations the Marine Institute commissioned this present study to investigate the feasibility of seaweed aquaculture in Ireland. Its objectives are to: Review the current status of seaweed aquaculture worldwide and in NW Europe, identify seaweed species, their potential uses and economic value, which would lend themselves to aquaculture in Ireland. Assess Irish expertise capable of supporting a national seaweed aquaculture programme. Identify priority RTDI projects necessary for supporting a development programme. Assess the availability of suitable sites for seaweed aquaculture. Develop an outline strategy for a national seaweed aquaculture programme over the next ten years.

    • Strategies for the elimination of matrix effects in the LC-MS/MS analysis of the lipophilic toxins okadaic acid and azaspiracid-1 in molluscan shellfish

      Kilcoyne, J; Fux, E (Elsevier, 2010)
      Considerable efforts are being made worldwide to replace in vivo assays with instrumental methods of analysis for the monitoring of marine biotoxins in shellfish. Analysis of these compounds by the preferred technique of LC-MS/MS is challenged by matrix effects associated with shellfish tissue components. In methods validation, assessment of matrix interferences is imperative to ensure the accuracy of analytical results. We evaluated matrix interferences in the analysis of okadaic acid (OA) and azaspiracid 1 (AZA1) in mollucscan shellfish by using a conventional acidic method on electrospray triple stage quadrapole (TSQ) and hybrid quadrupole time of flight (QToF) instruments, with matrix matched standards for several species. Using the acidic method, we found no matrix interferences for OA, and matrix suppression for AZA1, with the TSQ instrument; in contrast, we found matrix enhancement for OA, and no matrix interference for AZA1, with QToF. The suppression of AZA1 signal on the TSQ instrument was due to interfering compounds carried over from previous injections. The degree of suppression was dependent on the tissue type, ranging from 20 to 70%. Several strategies were evaluated to eliminate these interferences, including the partitioning of the extract with hexane, optimization of the chromatographic
    • Strategy for the development of the eel fishery in Ireland

      Moriarty, C. (Marine Institute, 1999)
      In the course of a reply to a Parliamentary Question on eel in February 1997, the Minister stated that ‘there is considerable potential for development of the fishery and an integrated development strategy plan is being formulated’. The Marine Institute and other bodies were asked by the Department of the Marine to prepare a submission. The material which follows is based on the author’s work as a biologist, first in the fisheries service of the Government and, subsequently in the Marine Institute.
    • Studies of the Eel Anguila Anguila in Ireland

      Moriarty, C. (Department of Agriculture and Fisheries [Fisheries Division], 1972)
      A total of 1,722 immature eels of lengths 25 to 95 cm and ages 5 to 33 years were collected in summer by fyke netting. It was shown that migration upstream was very slow, few eels of less than 9 years old being found upstream of Lough Corrib. Eels of less than 50 cm fed mainly on invertebrates, larger individuals brcoming piscivorous. Differences in the diets in the various lakes were observed and some evidence of selective feeding was found.
