The project aims to deliver the first fully coherent network of monitoring buoys across the regional seas of the Republic of Ireland, Northern Ireland and West Scotland. Integrating the longest continuously maintained oceanographic monitoring stations in Europe (e.g. Tiree mooring & Western Irish Sea) within a network of new buoys equipped with oceanographic sensors, acoustic recorders and advanced fish tracking technology
