Brown Crab Behaviour Negatively Affected by Offshore Wind Farm Underwater Cables

Brown crabs are “mesmerised” by electromagnetism from underwater power cables from underwater power cables laid around Scotland for offshore wind farms,,, “Underwater cables emit an electromagnetic field. When it’s at a strength of 500 microteslas and above, which is about 5 per cent of the strength of a fridge door magnet, the crabs seem to be attracted to it and just sit still,” Alastair Lyndon of Heriot-Watt University said. “If they’re not moving, they’re not foraging for food or seeking a mate. >click to read< , with a link to the study.14:07
