Demersal Fish Monitoring Princess Amalia Wind Farm

Research output: Book/ReportReportProfessional

Abstract

This report describes the results of field work in the Princess Amalia Wind Farm (in Dutch: Prinses Amaliawindpark, or PAWP). The field work meets the requirements of the Monitoring and Evaluation Programme, which is part of the Wbr-permit of the wind farm. The objective is to determine if the wind farm functions as a refugium for demersal fish. PAWP is expected to act as a refugium because fisheries are excluded in the farm area since 16 October 2007. It is expected that larger and older individuals as well as species sensitive to fisheries would have a better chance to survive, which would result in an increase in numbers and larger individuals.
