The Coexistence of Fisheries and Offshore Wind Energy

WHEN: Tuesday, July 14 | 10:00 AM EDT

Webinar link will be available for on-demand viewing at this time.

Offshore wind energy development has become a focal point as the U.S. tries to find renewable energy solutions to meet an increased energy demand and address concerns about climate change. Vineyard wind is a proposed offshore wind development located 14 miles south of Martha’s Vineyard, Massachusetts and is the first of many projects slated for development along the Atlantic coast in the coming years. The developers of Vineyard Wind are focused on minimizing impacts to fish populations and fisheries working with scientists and stakeholders to collect the necessary information for responsible project development. Listen in to the Vineyard Wind team as they cover turbine construction aspects, fishing access within the wind turbine area and the efforts that Vineyard Wind has gone through to reassure stakeholders that offshore wind energy and fisheries can coexist.
