Established at BOEM’s request, this new standing committee will help BOEM expand and improve its engagement and communication with the fishing community on offshore wind energy activities. The committee is to serve as an independent, credible forum to discuss the state of science and pressing concerns related to the intersection of offshore wind with fisheries. Committee members will choose meeting topics in consultation with BOEM staff, based on input from BOEM and other stakeholders.
