Combining offshore wind farming and marine aquaculture is an opportunity to share stakeholder resources and can lead to greater spatial efficiency in the offshore environment. Although biological and technical studies have demonstrated the general feasibility of this approach, a number of complex socioeconomic and technical challenges still need to be dealt with. Focusing on selected social aspects of multiple offshore use, this paper presents a short overview of recent research results on the potential and problems of wind farm–mariculture integration in the German Bight.

Since 1991, GAIA has offered a well-balanced and practice-oriented forum for transdisciplinary research. GAIA offers first-hand information on state of the art environmental research and on current solutions to environmental problems. Well-known editors, advisors, and authors work to ensure the high quality of the contributions found in GAIA and a unique transdisciplinary dialogue – in a comprehensible style.

    GAIA is an ISI-journal, listed in the Science Citation Index Expanded, Social Science Citation Index and in Current Contents/Social and Behavioral Sciences.
