Abstract: 

Conclusions

Large scale: outside & inside wind farm

  • No detectable effect on the fish community
  • Most fish seem indifferent
  • Role as refugium and/or as MPA limited

 

Local scale: only inside wind farm

  • Hard substrate attracted some species
  • Potential positive effect for these species
  • Depends on life-history, behaviour and residence time
