Abstract

The current request for data and maps is in the context of informing the offshore wind farm Project called Hornsea, in which Poseidon Aquatic Resource Management Ltd. currently is engaged. Poseidon is a company of fisheries consultants, specializing in the development of sustainable fisheries and aquaculture. The aim of the project in general is to build 223 turbines with a combined capacity of 1,000 MW. The area of the future wind park is located in the North Sea (centre latitude 53.930° - centre longitude 1.465°) and will be of a total surface area of 540 km2. In 2011, IMARES delivered data on the Dutch fishing fleet’s activities to Poseidon, covering the period 2001-2010 (data files containing landings statistics) and 2009-2010 (maps). This project is a follow-up of the 2011 request, now requesting 2012 maps and landings statistics, extended with value information of the landings.
