Regional Lobster Zone Council Virtual Meeting - Zones A and B

Date: April 27, 2021

Time: 5:00 pm

Location: Remote meeting via Teams video conference

Town: NA

DMR will be holding a Regional Meeting to engage with Lobster Zone Councils A and B to discuss an area being reviewed in the Midcoast/Southern Maine region for the potential of a floating offshore wind Research Array in federal waters. We will explain DMR's role in the process, provide an overview of the project and then focus discussion on the information available to us about fishing activity in the area, identify gaps in that data, and summarize feedback we've received through conversations with industry members. We hope to solicit feedback from the lobster industry about our understanding of fishing activity and use in the area of interest. This is also an opportunity to learn more about the project and get the latest update on where the siting conversation is heading.

The next Regional Lobster Zone Council Meeting for Zones A and B will be on Tuesday, April 27, 2021 at 5:00 p.m. We will not be meeting in person. We are using a video conference platform called Microsoft Teams.
