Scottish Marine and Freshwater Science Vol 5 No 4
Marine Scotland Science (MSS) prepared a scoping report of the research requirements for Atlantic salmon, sea trout and European eel in the context of offshore renewables (Malcolm et al, 2013). This report was intended to inform the development of a National Research and Monitoring Strategy for Diadromous Fish (hereafter NRMSD) to investigate the potential for interactions between diadromous fish and wind, wave and tidal renewable energy developments. To ensure that the NRMSD had broad sectorial support, meetings were convened to identify and discuss priority areas. There was general agreement on information requirements between the stakeholder groups. The following areas were considered priorities: Fish Distribution, Population Status, Response to noise, Effects of electromagnetic fields Risk of collision. Future engagement events will be convened at suitable stages in the development of the National Research and Monitoring Strategy for Diadromous Fish.

The stakeholder meetings and associated Steering Group have prioritised research and monitoring in line with the views of relevant stakeholders. Emergent priorities are now being included in a NRMSD which also highlights where funding has been committed. Each of these work packages will be scoped to identify logistical challenges, potential approaches and indicative costs. Engagement will be maintained with the Steering Group and individual stakeholders to ensure a focused and cohesive approach in this rapidly advancing area.
