We need measures that can come up with alternative about fishery living zone and enhance local acceptance for responding to the increase in the proportion of renewable energy production and construction of 12GW Offshore wind power according to Korea's Renewable Energy 3020 initiative and Korean-version New Deal. In this study, We suggest that differentiation plans of co-location model in connection with offshore wind power generation suitable for the East Sea. The East Sea is an optimal site for building of a floating offshore wind power generation(FOWPG) field. It is expected that economic effects like energy production, aquatic resource development and tourism industrialization by farming bluefin tuna which is high valued fish and suitable for offshore aquaculture on public waters in FOWPG field. And we can confirm that budget reduction, smart management by sharing operation management technology and increase in fishermen income.

재생에너지 3020 이행계획, 한국판 뉴딜 계획 등에 따라 신재생에너지 생산 비중 증가 대응과 해상풍력발전 12GW 건설을 위해 어업생활권 점유 대안 마련과 주민 수용성 제고를 위한 방안이 요구된다. 본 연구는 동해에 적합한 해상풍력발전단지와 연계한 수산자원 공존모델의 차별방안을 제시하였다. 동해는 부유식 해상풍력 발전단지 조성의 최적지로 단지 내 공유수면을 활용하여 외해양식에 적합한 고부가가치 어종인 참다랑어를 양식함으로써 에너지 생산, 수산자원 개발, 관광산업화를 통한 이익 창출로 경제적 효과 발생을 예측하였다. 또한, 운영관리 기술 공유 등으로 예산 감축, 스마트 관리 추진과 어민소득 증대 가능성을 확인하였다.
