HERE is a 2 min video on how Covid -19 has affected the business of mussel production.
Because of restrictions due to Covid-19, show producer Denis Loctier and his team could not be here in Ireland in person, so myself, Napoleon and Paul-Michelle jumped in to help. I hope we did it justice. We certainly had great fun shooting it and being around such picturesque places as Ardgroom and Kenmare and meeting the lovely lovely people out there.
The story we shot is about mussel farming, Kush Shellfish, it’s owner John Harrington and his team. We also interviewed Richard Donnelly of BIM. You’ll get to see how mussels are farmed and hear the story behind it.
P.S. We did get to try the mussels ourselves, and I can safely say they were the best I’ve had so far. Omnomnom.
