Wind Farms and Fisheries

Wind Farms and Fisheries

30 by 30. No, not the critically acclaimed ESPN documentary series — the phrase refers to the Biden Administration’s goal for the US to produce 30 gigawatts of offshore wind power generation by 2030. To support this target, large scale construction projects are planned off the coast of Oregon and the rest of the West Coast. Here to tell us about the potential effects of this planned construction on marine life is our guest this week, Margaret Campbell. She uses theoretical and historical modeling approaches to forecast the impact of wind farm infrastructure on fisheries. Numerous environmental, tribal, and commercial groups have an interest in wind farm placement and Margaret hopes that her research will help these stakeholders respond to a changing coastline. Hosted by Joseph Valencia and Hannah Stuwe.
