I'd be interested to hear from Mylo on the state of the Irish fisheries (esp. regarding stocks of sea-run trout) in the face of rising salmon farming on the west coast (of Ireland).

Our time in Eire coincided with essentially a crash in the once-plentiful stocks of gorgeous, incredibly wily sea trout (which we'd recognize here as sea-run browns). General concensus was it was/is due to salmon farming and the concentration of sea lice...

Truly tragic.
