This week Highland Radio spoke to Dr. Sarah McClean, Head of Science, Loughs Agency
Did you know?
Loughs Agency is a cross body agency that provides conservation, management, promotion and development of the fisheries and marine resources of the Foyle and Carlingford areas.
They must take into account policy and legislation on both sides of the border.
Why it’s important!
Public consultations give the general population a voice on the governance of our local areas.
In terms of climate, our local actions can have a global impact, for example the Wild Atlantic Salmon starts its life in Lough Foyle in Derry, but travels across the Atlantic ocean in its lifetime!
