The coasts of Argyll are set to become powerhouses of marine renewable energy, supplying Scotland with electricity harvested from the wind, ocean waves and tidal currents. However, these developments will also change the ocean ‘seascape’, with knock-on effects for marine plants and animals. In this lecture we ask: what will renewable energy developments look like from a barnacle’s point of view? Or from the perspective of other creatures living on or in the seabed?
A talk by Raeanne Miller, PhD student at SAMS.
