I am a Thanet Fisherman and part of Thanet Fishermen's Association. The proposed Thanet Windfarm extension and the export cable route will affect all of the Fishermen that work on this part of the coast, directly and indirectly, myself included. The extension area is used for all methods of fishing and so is the cable route. There are so many marine licenses being granted for projects in the Inner and Outer Thames Estuary, it has become over run. I do not think this project should go ahead as it will directly affect commercial fishing for our small vessel fleet and the livings of the Fishermen that work here.
