For fish and benthic habitats
In general, the wind farm will have very few negative effects on fish and the benthic communities. However, we do see opportunities to improve their habitat and will focus on enabling and stimulating a positive effect.
In determining our approach for these species, we have considered the various structures and safe, sheltered places that they prefer for finding shelter, accommodation or for laying eggs. As such, we can encourage benthos on hard substrate with the construction of the wind farm. We also look out for benthos in sand wave habitat by stimulating this habitat specifically.
