American Fisheries Society Annual Meeting

The American Fisheries Society (ASF) is hosting their annual meeting on November 6-10 in Baltimore, Maryland. This meeting has a symposium on the “Interactions Between Offshore Wind, Fisheries, and Fisheries Resources” which will examine the potential interactions of offshore wind on the Northeast U.S. shelf ecosystem, considering ecological, socio-economic, and fisheries management dimensions. 

The first part of this 2-part symposium will report the findings from the Synthesis of the Science, a collaborative effort led by the Responsible Offshore Development Alliance (RODA), the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (BOEM), the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), and  the Responsible Offshore Science Alliance (ROSA).  The second part of the Symposium will focus on original research related to offshore wind and fisheries interactions.
