New York Bight Transit Lane Workshop

March 27, 2019

Port Jefferson, NY

NYSERDA, NYSDEC, and RODA gathered feedback related to fishing transit throughout the New York Bight. This information gathering, which included a review of existing data and a fishermen survey, culminated in a transit workshop on March 27, 2018 at Danfords Hotel, Marina, and Spa in Port Jefferson, New York. The goal of the workshop was 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. The workshop materials are linked below.
