Offshore wind developers court recreational fishing community

Offshore wind energy developers are courting recreational fishermen in the New York Bight, who could gain dozens of new fishing spots around turbine towers, but worry about impacts of the massive projects on traditional fishing grounds. “Obviously the hot button for us is access,” said charter captain Paul Eidman of Anglers for Offshore Wind Power, a project of the National Wildlife Federation, which hosted the meeting in Toms River, N.J., on Wednesday along with the American Littoral Society for offshore wind companies and recreational fishermen. >click to read<09:31:04

    “Courting the for-hire and recreational angler” on the wind energy scam? Where do I start with the “warm and fuzzy” we hear from the local fishery liaison here, Julia Prince?

    The hot button question should about keeping your hard earned Benjamins in your wallet with yearly electrical rates increases from now until “whenever,”and why isn’t that mentioned at the wind meetings as both the US taxpayer and local electric payers are subsidizing this.

    Once again a reminder:

    Due to fast typing, the sentence should read, “should ‘be’ about keeping.”
