  • Offshore renewable energy sites provide new habitat for marine species

    Offshore renewable energy sites may provide new ‘stepping stone’ habitats for marine species, a recent study suggests. They could allow some species to spread beyond their present range and help vulnerable creatures survive in the face of climate change. However, they may also allow harmful invasive species to spread, the researchers warn, and the effects of such projects must be ...
