Tidal Revolution – Fishy Tales of Tidal Lagoons

Andrew Schofield, manager of GW4 Water Security Alliance (WSA), will discuss the Swansea Bay Tidal Lagoon and its impact on local fish stocks in this seminar.

  • 26 Mar 2020, 1.15pm to 26 Mar 2020, 2.05pm GMT
  • This is an online event.

In 2015, the Swansea Bay Tidal Lagoon was granted a Development Consent Order (DCO) by the UK Government. This project was intended to provide a valuable addition to the UK’s renewable energy mix and reduce dependency on fossil fuels. Nearly five years after being granted, construction has not started and the DCO deadline is approaching.

Concerns about the impact on local fish stocks has been a one key issue. Andrew Schofield will explain the evolution of fish impact assessments that may now meet the requirements of the statutory regulators and how impacts might be mitigated and monitored.
