Vineyard Wind 1, a project that will provide power to 400,000 Massachusetts’ homes, spoke with the OAC on May 12th.

Crista Bank is the Fisheries Manager, overseeing their efforts on improving relations with the fishing industry and surrounding communities. This includes directing outreach engagement, developing fisheries research programs, and identifying potential workforce opportunities for fishing industry involvement. She has spent the last four years laying the groundwork for these strategies as a Fisheries Liaison on the Vineyard Wind 1 project.

Dana Rebeiro, Vineyard Wind 1′s Massachusetts community liaison joined Crista. She has been involved with community outreach at the Covell’s beach project and provided additional information on the shore side part of this project.

Their presentation focused on the following:

  • general overview of the project; location, time frame, and project status
  • expected impact on recreational fishing (tower/pole) – acting as a FAD (Fish Aggregate Device)
  • status of the Covell Beach phase of the project and plans for the rest of the cable run

Fishing the Northeast Canyons

On Saturday night member Scott Clay gave a full house a fantastic insight on what it takes to prepare for a trip and then to fish the NE canyons. From bait preparation, to the right kind of food to bring, as well as the safety gear needed, the list is long. It was a great night and thanks again to Scott for bringing his experience in fishing these canyons to all of us.
