On September 13, 2019 NYSERDA held two commercial fishing focused webinars to learn more about New York’s recently awarded offshore wind projects. The webinars briefly described the procurement process, Fishing Mitigation Plan requirements, how the New York State Fishing Technical Working Group (F-TWG) will engage with developers to evolve those plans, and more about how the selected developers will be working with the commercial fishing community to understand and minimize impacts of the projects.
