Important workshop and survey to give input for fishing transit throughout NY Bight
RODA - NYSERDA Transit Workshop (March 27th 2019)
The Responsible Offshore Development Alliance (RODA), New York State Energy Research and Data Authority (NYSERDA), and New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYSDEC) are gathering feedback related to fishing transit throughout the NY 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. Your engagement in this workshop will help facilitate discussions of route options and design objectives to maximize the interest of the fishing industry.
