Fisheries Impacts from offshore wind energy development

The CFRF, in partnership with the federal Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (BOEM) and the Cornell Cooperative Extension Marine Program (Cornell CEMP), launched a project to solicit, gather, and summarize input from scientists, managers, and fishing industry members on: 1) the potential impact on fisheries resources from offshore wind energy development in the RI/MA and NY BOEM wind energy areas; and 2) recommended research approaches for impact assessment.
