How are we working together with fishing communities?
We’re proud to support the fishing industry. Find out more in the video above.
Scout boats like the Rayda Cheramie help with locating fishing gear during survey activities. By providing this work to fishermen, we’re able to draw upon their expertise to support safe survey activities, which help to inform the responsible development of offshore wind.
We’re proud to support the fishing industry, getting them involved to assist with project developments and see this as a win-win, because collaboration with fishing communities and other ocean users is so important to co-existence with our growing industry.
