The New York State Energy and Research Development Authority (NYSERDA) is conducting extensive stakeholder outreach to ensure offshore wind is developed responsibly. As part of its public outreach, NYSERDA will hold several public open houses specifically focusing on fish and fisheries to provide fisheries stakeholders with an opportunity to learn about and provide input to the New York State Offshore Wind Master Plan. During these open houses, NYSERDA would like to learn about the individuals and vessels fishing in the offshore waters of New York in an effort to understand and deconflict offshore wind development and operation, and fishing. The meetings will have an open‐door format, allowing for individuals to come and go as their schedule permits. Any member of the public is welcome to attend.
NYSERDA representatives will be available for discussion during the Mid‐Atlantic Fishery Management Council's August 2017 Council Meeting in Philadelphia, PA.
