    Federal University of Ceara Researchers Publish New Data on Wind Farms (Participatory Methodologies and the Production of Data on Artisanal Fishing in Areas with Offshore Wind Farm Projects in Ceara, Brazil)

    May 13, 2022 - Energy Daily News


      2022 MAY 12 (NewsRx) -- By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Energy Daily News -- A new study on wind farms is now available. According to news reporting out of Federal University of Ceara by NewsRx editors, research stated, “Offshore wind farms (OWF) are an essential emerging energy source.”

      Our news correspondents obtained a quote from the research from Federal University of Ceara: “In Brazil, environmental licensing of OWFs requires an identification map of multiple preexisting uses, targeting potentially conflicting activities, such as fishing and navigation routes. The objective of the work was to evaluate the application of participatory methodologies in the construction of data on fishing activity, aiming at analyzing potential impacts of OWFs in marine territories of the state of Ceara, with a focus on artisanal fishing. A participatory map and fishing calendar were produced in Colonia Z18, Amontada, Ceara. Data collection took place through four participatory workshops with 45 participants. The data were digitized in a GIS environment and later validated with the community. The results show complete overlap between an OWF and the local fishing activity.”

      According to the news reporters, the research concluded: “Thus, participatory methodologies can help in the acquisition of fishery data and the assessment of the multiple uses of marine territories.”
