        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.
