Brennan, Ruth; Rozanov, Michael (Mysh)

Managing for Diversity: keeping everyone afloat in Irish fisheries (6:47, 2020) is a short animation about the diversity of Ireland's fishing industry, with a focus on the offshore islands small-scale fleet. Almost three thousand islanders live on eighteen islands off the west coast of Ireland. These islands are not connected to the mainland by a land causeway. While many of these islands are dependent on a small-scale fishing industry for survival, their fishing communities face challenges in navigating complex fisheries governance systems at local, regional, national and EU scales. This animation is intended to provide a snapshot of the complexity of the issues at play and the difficulties for small-scale boats in accessing the fish that are a public resource. Written and based on research by Dr Ruth Brennan; Design and animation by Michael (Mysh) Rozanov; Sound design and music by Brían Mac Gloinn. The CO-SUSTAIN project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under the Marie Skłodowska-Curie grant agreement No 789524.
