In 2005/2006 the BBC Natural History Unit made a documentary about Leatherback Turtles. Filmed along the inshore waters of the Dingle Peninsula at Baile na nGall, it followed local driftnet fisherman Padraig Frank O'Suillebhean and scientists, Tom Doyle and Johathan Houghton as they attempted to strap a satellite tracking device on to the back of a leatherback. The documentary was set against the background of the closing of drift netting for Atlantic Salmon. It is an important socio-economic statement. In the 16 years that have followed it would be interesting to see how these inshore fishermen and their kids (now adults) have fared since.
