Webinar: NOAA Fisheries and Bureau of Ocean Energy Management Federal Survey Mitigation Implementation Strategy
Webinars for the public about the joint NOAA Fisheries and BOEM draft implementation strategy for mitigating the impacts of offshore wind energy development on NOAA Fisheries’ surveys.
In support of the Biden-Harris Administration’s goals of advancing offshore wind energy production responsibly while protecting biodiversity and promoting cooperative ocean use, NOAA Fisheries and BOEM jointly developed a Draft Federal Survey Mitigation Implementation Strategy. It addresses anticipated impacts of offshore wind energy development on NOAA Fisheries’ scientific surveys in the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic regions. This strategy represents a major step in accomplishing BOEM and NOAA Fisheries’ Federal Survey Mitigation effort, which was launched in 2021.
The implementation strategy identifies the essential components of survey mitigation, as well as objectives and actions to accomplish the goals of survey mitigation.
NOAA Fisheries and BOEM will co-host two informational webinars to present the Draft Federal Mitigation Implementation Strategy. Expert staff will be available to answer questions. Everyone is welcome to participate in these events. These events are not formal opportunities to comment. The first webinar was held on March 29, 2022. The second webinar was rescheduled for April 11, 2022. See below for information on how to log-in to the webinar.
