Tralee Bay is a “major nursery” for sharks and rays in Irish waters, says a local marine wildlife expert.
And Kevin Flannery insists the important breeding ground for the likes of angel sharks and porbeagle sharks needs protection.
Marine biologist Flannery, of Dingle OceanWorld, described the little-known nursery off the Kerry coast as “a Serengeti of the Atlantic for rays and sharks”.
And as National Biodiversity Week begins, he’s calling for Tralee Bay to be designated as a marine protected area to provide a safe haven for the many species that lay their eggs there in summer months.
