New podcast looks at marine life in lockdown

The Scottish Fisheries Museum’s latest podcast series Anchored: Marine life in lockdown looks at the affect the pandemic has had on maritime industries. 

This podcast series is the second from the Anstruther based national museum, the first being Sea Change, looking at the future of our seas. This future has, however, been hit by something completely unforeseen: A global pandemic.

Anchored: Marine Life in Lockdown was created to represent the many industries and people that rely on our coasts and waters from the fishermen to marine scientists, tourist attractions and more.

In the first three episodes we have spoken to people such as Catherine Gemmell from the Marine Conservation Society, Peter Bruce who is Skipper of the Budding Rose PD418 and Minister for Rural Affairs and the Natural Environment, Mairi Gougeon.

In future episodes you will be hearing from Director of Fisheries Innovation Scotland, Kara Brydson. As well as staff at the Firth of Forth Lobster Hatchery and more.

So far, the podcast has covered the lockdown’s effect on conservation efforts, the catching and selling industries and has spoke about seafood with Seafood Scotland, fish mongering expert CJ Jackson and chef Jak O’Donnell.
