Fishing and Offshore Renewable Energy

Offshore Wind Leasing Path Forward

America needs clean, safe, domestic energy. Offshore wind is one abundant source of that energy.

But as we develop that offshore energy potential, we need to do it in a way that is safe, fair and transparent to all ocean users – including fishermen.

That’s why we’ve developed this website: To give you, the fishing community, an easy way to find all the information you need about proposed offshore energy developments. It contains information on BOEM’s regulatory process, announcements, upcoming events, offshore wind activities, relevant science and more.

Sign up for BOEM updates on offshore wind and fisheries.

For questions about offshore wind efforts, please reach out to Office of Communications.
