Abstract: 

This report draws on the body of environmental assessment work done on marine renewable energy installations (MREI) in other regions, particularly in Europe, and summarized in a companion report – Ecology and Effects of Marine Renewable Energy Installations. A combination of several techniques is required in order to appropriately monitor marine megavertebrate species around tidal turbine sites; these techniques are reviewed, and some of the particular challenges of monitoring at tidal turbine sites are identified.

 

A methodology plan specific to the proposed tidal energy project for Muskeget Channel by the Town of Edgartown is outlined in this report. This methodology plan is based on accepted survey and mitigation techniques, previous research and practical experience at other MREI sites and established, good scientific practice.
