NYSERDA, NYSDEC, and RODA are gathering feedback related to fishing transit throughout the New York Bight. This information gathering, which includes a review of existing data and a fishermen survey, will culminate in a transit workshop scheduled for March 27, 2018 at Danfords Hotel, Marina, and Spa in Port Jefferson, New York. The goal of the workshop is to present information collected on New York Bight transit routes to participants, to gather feedback, and ultimately develop a Workshop Report that provides a clearer understanding of where transit lanes would provide the greatest value prior to the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management's delineation of new offshore wind lease areas in the New York Bight.

For more information on the transit workshop, please visit the RODA website.
