Ørsted Offshore North America is committed to maintaining a strong working relationship with all commercial and recreational fisherman who may be affected by a wind farm or wind farm activities in and around a lease area. Ørsted believes that good communication is essential to creating understanding between those who provide food for tables and those who provide electricity for homes. While not all conflicts can be resolved through communication alone, open and honest interaction helps to manage conflicts when they arise and identify ways to avoid or mitigate impacts that may occur.
The Fisheries Communication and Outreach Plan ("plan") outlines key strategies that Ørsted Offshore North America will use to communicate with fishermen and fishing industry representative associated with all projects. The goals of this effort are to effectively communicate, collaborate, coordinate, and achieve coexistence.
