Environmental impact assessment

Oceanic Développement has implemented impact studies of maritim infrastructure projects (aggregate extractions, offshore wind farms, marine current power plants) on the fishing activities. We assist maritime projects leaders in completing their statutory impact studies on the topics “fisheries resources” and “fishing activities”.

Our service comprises :

  • Defining the tools needed for fisheries data collection : monitoring methods of fisheries resources and fleets activities;
  • Planning fieldworks : fishing surveys trips with chartered vessels;
  • Supporting project formulation and implementing compensatory measures;
  • Writing down the impact study.

For instance, the company has recently coordinated survey trips to assess sand eel population in Lannion Bay in an area for which aggregates extraction project has been submitted.
