Donal Maguire grew up on Ireland’s west coast, a background which has given him an enduring fascination with the sea. Graduating in 1981, he went straight into the aquaculture industry, emigrating to Scotland in 1984 to manage a number of salmon-farming companies. He was awarded a Nuffield Scholarship in 1988 and represented the industry on a wide range of bodies. In 1997, he was appointed Director of Aquaculture Development Services with BIM (Bord Iascaigh Mhara) in Ireland, a position he continues to hold. He has been a leader in many significant developments in the Irish sector over the last 20 years.
