Holding a Sea Cucumber

I like to look at and photograph the sea life that live on my Mother’s aquaculture farm in the West of Ireland. This is a sea cucumber that I pulled out of the water to see how it’s regenerative process was going after it suffered damage from fishermen dredging in the sea. It had previously been brought to the farm by a fisherman and eats the detritus from the abalone which keeps the tanks clean.
