Equinor has developed and implemented the world's first floating offshore wind farm,
composed of five floating wind turbines, off the coast of Peterhead, Scotland. In order to
identify whether the infrastructures generate a "reef-effect" (i.e. increased aggregations due to
attraction or increased productivity) on local fish population, Akvaplan-niva AS was
contracted to collect information on fish stock at and around the wind farm. In this report, we
present the methodologies and the results, along with a discussion on the potential reef-effect
of this particular farm and concluding remarks on the use of the autonomous technology used
for this particular experiment.
