Irish Sea on TV

BBC North West Tonight reported recently on what marine conservations zones will mean for the Irish Sea
The Queen is signed the Marine and Coastal Access Bill into law on November 12th and the new Act requires the creation of marine conservation zones to protect parts of the seas around the UK. Some of them will be in the Irish Sea.
So the BBC’s environment correspondent in the North West, Colin Sykes, joined Captain Peter Kenny and project manager Rowan Byrne earlier today for a trip out into the Irish Sea.
His report from onboard the Iantha featured in the regional news – your can watch it here.
Peter Kenny owns the Iantha and runs Corporate Cruising, which operates sight-seeing trips around the Irish Sea as far away as Ireland, Scotland, the Isle of Mann and Wales.
Peter told us: “I love the whole activity of skippering and chartering the boat. I think I get a bigger thrill out of the trip than the clients even though we go to the same places time and time again.
“The Irish Sea is a place of work for a lot of people, but it’s also just a beautiful place.”
