Government has committed to the UK generating 30% of its electricity from renewable sources by the year 2020 in order to reduce carbon emissions, combat climate change and secure the UK energy supply. A significant proportion of this renewable energy will come from windfarms sited off the UK coast. The establishment of windfarms at sea has the potential to cause disruption to commercial fishing activities, including through the loss of access to some fishing grounds for the operational life of the windfarm. In light of the potential for fishermen to lose access to significant sea areas within offshore windfarms, this project was focused on supporting commercial fishermen and dependent fishing communities ashore over the long term by investigating options and opportunities for marine fisheries mitigation associated with windfarms. The overall aim of the project was to develop a menu of possible mitigation options which would be of use to fishermen, developers, regulatory and statutory bodies and marine resource managers in discussions related to current and future windfarm developments, as well as in other offshore industry developments and in any future consideration of marine spatial planning issues. In brief, the aim of this project can be summarised as "Identifying ways to keep fishermen fishing".
