Increased presence of organisms to a device.
Attraction can be caused by an increased presence of food, natural curiosity, or the creation of new habitat, all of which can occur with the introduction of a new structure into the environment. The attraction of various animals to wind energy and marine renewable energy devices may increase the impact of various stressors. The consequence of this interaction can vary greatly based on the technology type, existing stressors, and the receptor species. For example, attraction to wind energy and tidal energy turbines may increase risk of collision or noise exposure, while the attraction to new reefing habitats may benefit populations and species diversity.
