This network aims to collect data on fish density and diversity in and around wind farms during their construction and operational phases, as well as understanding fish behaviour around pile driving areas. Data will be collected with acoustic systems (wideband autonomous transceivers - WBATs-, fitted with 70kHz and 200kHz transducers, C-PODs, hydrophones). In addition, an acoustic deterrent device (Faunaguard) will be used during short periods together with the other sensors.
