Impact Of Wind Farms In The North Sea (World’s Largest Offshore Wind Farms)

(3 Feb 2023) North Sea wind farms generate an increase in sediment carbon in deeper areas and a decrease in dissolved oxygen. Changes in organic sediment distribution and quantity could have a negative effect on the habitat quality for benthic species. Previous studies have suggested that wind farms negatively impact a wide range of marine life … including scallops, quahogs, clams, finfish, marine mammals and sea turtles … on the U.S. east coast and the Gulf of Mexico. Ships used to build and maintain offshore wind farms burn diesel fuel. Pile-driving, seismic profiling and trenching disturb fish larvae, increase noise levels, cause sedimentation of the water and adversely impact mammals that rely on sound for predation, migration and communication.
