County Down Seafood - August 2015

This report was produced by tourism specalists BTS, supported by fish industry experts Poseidon Consulting.  It is a market based business plan, commissioned by Strangford Lough & Lecale Partnership (SLLP), with funding from the EU and the South East Area Fisheries Local Action Group (SEAFLAG), to provide economic benefit to the South East Area which includes the fishing ports Portavogie, Ardglass, and Kilkeel.

The analysis is designed to help develop the local market for locally caught seafood and local quality agricultural produce within the area.  The project examines the opportunities, for food tourism in the Strangford Lough and Mourne Mountain destination, building on the concentration of the Northern Ireland fishing industry in the area, the quality of other local food produce and the number and the quality of local eating places across the area.

Common Seal Research and Management SLMC Report July 1999

This report outlines the Strangford Lough Management Committee's recommendations to Government with regard to common seals as part of its ongoing role to advise on the strategic management of Strangford Lough. In June 1998 the Strangford Lough Management Committee formed a working group to address concerns over the decline in the common seal (Phoca vitulina) population of Strangford Lough since the late 80’s. The Common Seal Research and Management Working Group was asked to produce a report which would give an overview of the status of common seals in the Lough, examine concerns raised in some detail and if appropriate, make recommendations for a programme of action to address the situation.

Coastal Rowing The Narrows Challenges

In 2014, people living along the County Down coast from Donaghadee to Dumdrum, built nine coastal rowing boats (St Ayles' skiffs) as part of a revival of interest in our maritime and boat building heritage and the development of maritime tourism. Strangers soon became friends and part of a team, pooling their expertise and gaining new skills.
