The workshop will identify and describe the effects of offshore wind energy expansion on fishing operations. Further, it will develop indicators to assess the socio-economic impact on fishing communities and society in order to document the full extent of fishing industry interactions with offshore wind development.
WKSEIOWFC (15-17 March 2021, online meeting) will improve the understanding of socio-economic effects of offshore wind projects on fisheries; these activities are considered to have a very high priority given the rapid expansion of the wind energy sector.
