Whales could boost Irish tourism

A leading marine biologist says a whale app could help boost tourism by allowing visitors to track giant humpbacks along the Wild Atlantic Way.whale
One hundred and nine humpback whales have been officially recorded in Irish waters – and many return to our coast annually.
 After returning from Iceland, the marine biologist said Ireland could learn from the thriving whale-watching industry in the Northern European country.
"The whale-watching tourism in Iceland is of a magnitude bigger than Ireland and yet the weather is not much better there. You just have to weatherproof your tourism industry
"It's to encourage people to come to Ireland to see our magnificent wild Atlantic wildlife, and it's not just whales, it's seals, sea birds, it's dolphins."

 

With numbers of the majestic creatures increasing yearly in Ireland, the Chief Science Officer with the Irish Whale and Dolphin Group, Dr Simon Berrow says Ireland’s status as one of the best whale-watching spots in Europe is still largely an untapped resource.
The marine biologist is featured in the documentary, Ireland to Iceland – On The Trail of The Humpback Whale which airs on RTÉ tonight.
The research expedition helped to establish that Iceland and Ireland share humpback whale populations as one of the humpbacks photographed on the trip had previously been identified in Irish waters.
 
Dr Berrow said the number of catalogued humpback whales identified by their tail flukes in Ireland is currently at 109.
