On 27 October 2020, the Policy Department for Structural and Cohesion Policies presented a new study "Impact of the use of offshore wind and other marine renewables on European fisheries" at the PECH Committee meeting.

The study provides an overview of general impacts of the development of offshore wind farms and other marine renewables on the European fishing sector. It further highlights pathways for possible co-existence solutions of both sectors, a description of best practice examples and lessons learnt, the identification of research gaps and last but not least the presentation of policy recommendations.
