BOEM Releases Final Report on Best Management Practices and Mitigation Measures for Offshore Wind Development

The Bureau of Ocean Energy Management BOEM has announced that the final report regarding Atlantic offshore wind best management practices (BMPs) to reduce fishing impacts is now available on BOEM's website. This report is a culmination of nine BOEM-sponsored workshops held between October 2012 and April 2014 with commercial and recreational fishers from Maine to North Carolina and offshore wind developers. BOEM and renewable energy lessees in the Atlantic will use the recommendations in this report to adopt BMPs specific to individual development plans for offshore wind.
