Cwrwg y Mor/Sea Coracle
Cwrwg y Mor/ Sea Coracle Project SDF funding will contribute towards the construction of a Cwrwg/Curragh, a traditional sea going coracle, which will then be used to restore the tradition of Seine net fishing in local coastal communities and monitor fish species for scientific research and education purposes. It will be part of The Sea Trust’s ongoing “Sea Here” project based at the Ocean Lab, Fishguard Harbour. The Curragh will be built on site in the Ocean Lab by an expert in building these traditional craft and involve many local people. The Sea Trust will film the construction process for use within their “Sea Here” exhibit. A local "Yn Seine" group will be set up for seine netting sessions. In addition the Cwrwg, which is very light and easy to transport, will be suspended from the roof supports of the "Tower" (part of the Ocean Lab) when not in use, as an exhibit in the "Sea Here" exhibition. Information panels about traditional fishing methods historically carried out in North Pembrokeshire will also be provided.
