Globally, there is an urgent need to move away from fossil fuels, like oil and gas. This will require a rapid expansion of our renewable energy capacity in the coming decades, including wind farms. Offshore locations offer a huge potential due to stronger and more consistent winds for wind farms. However, tapping into this resource will increase our human footprint on offshore marine environments. In this article, we outline potential positive and negative effects that offshore wind farms may have on fish during the operational phase of the wind farm.
