Impacts of Electromagnetic Fields Associated with Marine and Hydrokinetic Surrogate Technologies on Fish Movements and Behaviors

Lead PI: Dr. Daniel J. Pondella II, Occidental College
Start Year: 2013 | Duration: 2 Years
Partners: Vantuna Research Group

The project team will compile and analyze existing information related to the impacts of electromagnetic forces (EMFs) produced by MHK surrogate technologies on fish behaviors. They will then generate a risk assessment model for interactions of specific fish species with EMFs produced by MHK surrogates. This project hopes to fill in gaps in current knowledge of impacts of EMFs created by MHK surrogates on marine organisms.
