Description

The report in this series summarises the findings of the first year of post construction fish community surveys undertaken
to date of tis report 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. 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.  The long line survey data is also present in this series.
