Farmer holding a salmon for spawning.
In Irish legend, the salmon is a magic fish, bestowing wisdom on its human eater. Along the Connemara coast of western Ireland, it’s telling a co-op of fish farmers how to thrive in the modern world without leaving their Gaelic speaking home.
The salmon is named after the kelp, Sea Whistle, or Ascophyllum nodosum. The kelp is found throughout the northeastern Atlantic. From under the waves, along the rocky coast and the sandy beaches, its strands flow through the region.
