People are being warned to look out for the fish and have been issued with advice on what to do if you suffer a weever fish injury. To control the pain which can be excruciating , the NHS advises immersing the affected area in hot water as hot as can be tolerated for 30 to 90 mins.

In RNLI Lifeguards issued an alert to the public after a large number of weever fish were found on local beaches. The venomous fish have spines of their backs and gill covers and come into shallow water, burying themselves under the sand - and if stepped on, the spine of the fish may pierce the skin, discharging the venom. The "excruciating" pain usually lasts for around two hours, and flesh around the spine becomes red, inflamed and swells up. Further complications will emerge if the spines have broken off into the wound, as they may need to be removed before the pain will subside.

Weever fish stings are best treated with as hot water that the affected person can handle for at least 30 minutes, or use hot flannels or towels. It is also advised if the spine is stuck in your foot that you pull it out with tweezers or the edge of a bank card - but do not touch the spine with bare hands.

Vineyard Wind says it did its homework early on in the design process. It held over meetings with fishermen or fishing organizations that work the waters in or around the wind farm area. And it analyzed vessel traffic data to find patterns in how fishermen operate. Erich Stephens, Chief Development Officer for Vineyard Wind says the developer conducted a navigational risk assessment of the wind farm area that took lessons from the United Kingdom and other parts of the world.
