        Lamprey in the Stream | Ireland's Wild Coast

        Irish rivers are home to an ancient species called the Sea Lamprey. They are born in rivers, migrate to the ocean and return to rivers again to spawn—a unique split between fresh and saltwater habitats. The Sea Lamprey has been living for 300 million years, which means it predates dinosaurs. The Sea Lamprey looks alien—like a creature from another time—but it occupies an important niche in Ireland's ecosystem.
