• Report on Inshore Surveys Around the Irish Coast

      Crowley, M A (Department of Agriculture and Fisheries (Fisheries Division), 1973)
      The purpose of this leaflet is to discuss the quantity and quality of some species of commercially valuable shellfish found in certain estuaries around the Irish coast. In recent years the shellfish industry has attracted considerable interest in Ireland, partly because of the demand in England and on the Continent of Europe for Irish shellfish and shellfish products and partly because of the interest which the general public has in fish farming.
