6. Glossary of Terms

Diadromous fish are species that migrate on a regular, timed, consistent and often obligatory basis between fresh waters and the sea (Myers, 1949).

NRMSD : National Research and Monitoring Strategy for Diadromous fish which aims to investigate the potential for interactions between diadromous fish and wind, wave and tidal renewable energy developments

Tidal Sector: Tidal renewable energy developers are a sector aiming to developed infrastructure within the marine environment to harness tidal stream energy and convert this into electricity or other useful forms of power.

Wave Sector: Wave renewable energy developers are a sector aiming to developed infrastructure within the marine environment to harness wave energy and convert this into electricity or other useful forms of power.

Wild Fisheries Sector: The wild fisheries sector included parties interested in Atlantic Salmon, Sea trout and Eels as fisheries targets and conservation.

Wind Sector: Wind renewable energy developers are a sector aiming to developed infrastructure to convert offshore wind energy into electricity or other useful forms of power.
