The symposium aims to collect current knowledge of ecological benefits of offshore wind farms and the potential use of the available marine resources through fisheries and aquaculture. It will also cast an eye on the complex interconnections of socialecological systems and assess the trade-offs of marine resources exploitation within offshore wind farms.
The different topics are addressed within the framework of three sessions. Each starts with a keynote speech and offers ample space for further presentations and lively discussions. Furthermore, research and results are presented on various posters. At the social event in the evening participants can enjoy a delicious seafood meal, get together in a relaxed atmosphere and expand their networks.
