Fish Guidance Systems (FGS) will be commenting upon the requirement for an Acoustic Fish Deterrent (AFD) that was original proposed by EDF, but subsequently removed from the consultation documents. An AFD is an integral part of the Environment Agency best practice guide for the screening of coastal intakes, and the presence of herring and other 'fragile' fish at the site that can not pass through a fish recovery and return system indicates a requirement for a suitable system. FGS will outline its current AFD system, and will confirm that an AFD system is available, and the company can provide the required AFD to screen the intakes.
