FISHOWF: Effective monitoring strategies to identify and evaluate effects of offshore wind farms and their export cables on fish communities
France Energies Marines; 2022; FISHOWF animal tagging program.

Availability: This work is licensed under meaning it is under moratorium until 2026-01-01

The objective of the FISHOWF project is to monitor occupancy patterns and movements of fish species at different spatial scales to identify effects of offshore wind farms. In the Channel and Atlantic Ocean, several species of sharks and rays are monitored as well as large crustaceans. In the Mediterranean sea, large pelagic fish are monitored such as blue shark, juvenile bluefin tuna, sea bass
