    Its to bad Jackie O Dell did not get appointed, she has worked hard for the fishing industry ,hopefully she might get it in the future.


    Jackie you certainly have put your time in plus… Sorry you missed out… I hope this collaboration of people are here to protect OUR OCEANS AND FISHERIES…. If this is a Wind-Turbine promotion group than we have a major pollution problem “POLITICAL POLLUTION to the max!!!
    Catch Shares destroyed our Fisheries, just to divide and conquer!!!
    The Obama Ocean Policy stole our Common Property!!!
    Lets not let Wind-Turbines alter and destroy OUR OCEAN ECOSYSTEM!!! Congratulations Micheal Pierdinock I think we agree!


    Once again congratulations on your appointment… I read all the comments that you made on Block Island and it’s Wind-Turbines. I was especially interested on your view of the High Voltage Power-Line and it’s lack of Fish or other Life forms… That Powerline is less then 40k Volts a tenth or less then that of a normal size Wind-Farm!!! The Power-Line designs I’ve seen are by nom means sufficient to shield the Ocean Bottom from EMF… Sand Lance live in the Gravel and Sand between EMF and Stray Electricity!!!! I can’t see them calling this home!!! Sand Lance is the quintessential forage fish for over a 100 species from Shore Birds, to Humpbacks you should see their Scars!!!
