Artwork in the sidewalk near the Samuel Beckett Bridge

During a walk from my hotel in Dublin to the Samuel Beckett Bridge, I discovered these intriguing objects in the sidewalk. There are dozens of them on the waterfront of the Liffey River.

When you first look at them they seem to be tiny aquariums with fish, illuminated from the bottom. When you look closer, you will notice that these are not real fish, but plastic or metal objects resembling fish and other marine life. Each one of them is different.

I tried to research on the Internet what exactly they are called and who created or designed them but could not find any information. Does anybody know? Please drop me a line, I am curious. I found them pretty cool and photographed several of them.
