The virtual open session will introduce the committee to the public and discuss the committee's goals.

Established at BOEM’s request, this new standing committee will help BOEM expand and improve its engagement and communication with the fishing community on offshore wind energy activities.

Committee members will choose meeting topics in consultation with BOEM staff, based on input from BOEM and other stakeholders.
