BOEM Updates Fishing Industry on Atlantic Offshore Wind Projects
The US Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (BOEM) has set up a new webpage that serves as a single point of entry for updates on Atlantic offshore renewable energy planning and leasing efforts.
The webpage, dedicated to the commercial fishing industry, will provide users with status updates, charts and maps, and project-specific developer contact information for fisheries liaisons and fishery representatives.
The fishing industry can get updates on 15 projects related to offshore wind development off the Atlantic coast.
BOEM is also holding meetings and workshops for fishermen regarding renewable energy project development and environmental studies at the programmatic and project-specific level.
