Hydrocarbon offshore exploitation and wind farms installation could present several impacts on marine species, so the BOEM (Bureau of Ocean Energy Management), has recently published the report named “Best Management Practices Workshop for Atlantic Offshore Wind Facilities and Marine Protected Species” (https://www.boem.gov/Final-Summary-Report-for-BMP-Workshop-BOEM/) which collects the main relevant international experiences on the field of marine fauna protection.

This book provides to all the parties involved in the EIA process of an exploitation campaign or the construction of a new offshore wind farm the most advanced tool to monitor and minimize the adverse effects of these impacting activities.
