Description
Epibenthos and demersal fish monitoring in function of wind energy development. Trawl samples were taken within the wind farms (between the turbine rows, just outside the edges of the concessions and at reference stations more

Sampling activities were in Febuary-March and/or in September-October from 2005. 8 meter shrimp trawl (22 mm mesh in the cod end) equipped with a bolder chain. The net was towed during 15 minutes at an average speed of 4 knots.
