Description

This report summarises the findings of the first year of post construction fish community surveys undertaken  in the area of the Lynn & Inner Dowsing Offshore Wind Farm (LID). Detailed data reports for each of the fishing surveys are appended to the report and as individual series. The surveys undertaken (2m beam and otter trawling, shrimp trawling, potting and longlining) generally replicate the pre-construction surveys undertaken in 2004 and 2005 and utilise local fishermen and fishing vessels. A local commercial fisherman also recorded long-line catches around the wind farm. 

Neither the summary nor data reports compare the data collected in this first year post-construction with the baseline on request of the client as it was felt that a minimum of two year of post construction data is required before attempting a comparison to reduce the impact of non-normally distributed data.

Although the results of the longlining surveys were not analysed by Brown & May Marine Ltd., as such they are not included in the following report, the data is included in the data pack
