Ken Whelan is a fisheries scientist and runs his own
fisheries consultancy. He has been a keen angler
since a very young age and has written extensively
on angling topics. He has fished in many remote
locations throughout the world: Montana, New
Zealand, Chile, Slovenia, Canada and even the
wild, untamed tundra of the Kola Peninsula and
the exotic rivers of Mongolia. Ken has also
produced, scripted and presented many films and
videos on various aspects of Irish fisheries and
angling. He is a regular radio contributor to
Mooney Goes Wild on RTE. Lucky to have weaved
his hobby into his job, he is never quite sure
whether he is working or enjoying himself!
Ken will be manning the Entomology station at the Fair and also giving a talk in the lecture theatre.
