Brown and May Marine Ltd was commissioned by Greater Gabbard Offshore Winds Limited (GGOWL) to undertake a series of pre-construction adult and juvenile fish surveys in the area relevant to the Greater Gabbard Offshore Wind Farm extension. The wind farm is to be located 25km off the coast of Suffolk around the Inner Gabbard and Galloper sandbanks. The methodology, vessel and gears to be used were agreed in consultation with Cefas, Lowestoft and Royal Haskoning. A survey and a report were generated for both the Autumn/Winter period of 2008, and the Spring of 2009. This series also contains the GIS datasets that correlate with these reports.
