Committee Opportunity: Offshore Wind Energy and Fisheries

The Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (BOEM) recently announced that they have requested that the National Academies of Science, Engineering and Medicine (NASEM) establish a new 15 member standing 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.  This is part of BOEM’s efforts to expand and improve its communication with the fishing community on offshore wind energy activities.

NASEM is seeking nominations for individuals to serve on this committee. The committee will be a diverse group of scientists and other stakeholders related to offshore wind and fisheries broadly, such as commercial and recreational fisheries, non-governmental organizations, community representatives and offshore wind industry. Anyone can nominate any individual as a committee member.

Submit your nominations by November 9, 2022.
