National Academies of Science Seeks Nominations for New Committee for Offshore Wind Energy and Fisheries Due November 9
If you or someone you know is interested in this nomination, please contact email@example.com.
The Bureau of Ocean Energy Management announced that the National Academies of Science, Engineering, and Medicine will establish a new 15-member committee on offshore wind energy and fisheries. The committee will serve as an independent, credible forum to discuss the state of science and pressing concerns related to the intersection of offshore wind with fisheries. They are seeking representatives from: state and local government; academia; non-governmental organizations; commercial and recreational fisheries; and the offshore wind energy sector. Nominations are due November 9.
BOEM seeks to expand and improve its communication with the fishing community on offshore wind energy activities. This is an opportunity to provide feedback on offshore wind development activities specifically through a fisheries lens. We encourage you to submit nominations for consideration.
