Acoustics can provide important information to assess underwater resources, noise and wildlife interactions on marine energy sites. The European Marine Energy Centre (EMEC) has collaborated on a number of projects to develop acoustic technology, methods and quality control of monitoring techniques used for such assessments. This paper outlines previous and current activities at EMEC in this area, with a focus upon beneficial advances through knowledge exchange with Loughborough University and other knowledge partners.
