Follow-up measures

Monitoring of fishing activities

Objectives and methodology

Fishing activity in the bay of Saint-Brieuc represents an important part of the local economy. The objective of monitoring fishing activities is to evaluate the evolution of the fishing fleet and fishing practices, from an economic point of view, in order to determine the impact of the wind farm on this activity.

A similar study on fishing activities near the settlement area was carried out in 2013 as part of the Ailes Marines project.

Monitoring will focus on a study of the evolution of the fishing fleet (numbers, fleet structure, professions) in the bay of Saint-Brieuc, as well as a study of fishing practices (fishing zones according to professions). ).

The data analyzed to present the fleet in the bay of Saint Brieuc and its surroundings will come a priori from the VALPENA tool and will include:

  • Data concerning maritime districts;
  • Data from statistical rectangles.

The data will be based on surveys carried out in year “n” which will make it possible, after processing, to obtain cartographic and statistical information on fishing activities in year “n-1” by rectangle, within the Bay of Saint Brieuc.

The definition of the contours of the measure is currently being discussed with the Côtes d'Armor Maritime Fisheries and Marine Farming Committee (CDPMEM 22). The protocol for this monitoring will be defined jointly between CDPMEM 22 and Ailes Marines .
