Assessing fisheries displacement by other licensed marine activities: good practice guidance - literature review
This project developed ‘Good Practice Guidance for Assessing Fisheries Displacement’ through a detailed literature review and consultation with the ScotMER Fish and Fisheries Receptor Group (FFSRG), commercial fisheries industry, offshore energy and regulatory sectors.
9 Knowledge gap analysis
Several knowledge gaps were identified during the production of the Literature Review and associated Good Practice Guidance. Although some knowledge gaps were identified by the project team, this was a key focus area for stakeholder consultation. The knowledge gaps are provided in Table 9.1. In cases where a knowledge gap relates to an existing knowledge gap presented in the ScotMER evidence map, this is identified in the table.
|Knowledge gap||Recommendation||ScotMER evidence map ID (if appropriate)|
|Monitoring of fishing activity in operational wind farms||
|Statutory and non-statutory guidance||
|Commercial fisheries data – accuracy, availability and accessibility||
|Impact of fisheries displacement||
|Conflict and competition||
|Availability of fishing grounds||
|Potential for co-existence between commercial fisheries and other licensed marine activities||
