Supporting Fisheries

We captured this footage from the waters underneath the pilot project turbines, where the foundations are already attracting marine life. Learn more about CVOW’s environmental stewardship.

Fisheries Engagement

Throughout our offshore work on the Coastal Virginia Offshore Wind (CVOW) projects, we remain committed to maintaining communications with the fishing community and other mariners in the area. All mariners are encouraged to contact Dominion Energy’s Fisheries Liaisons with any specific questions about the status of the projects in relation to fisheries.

Fisheries Roundtables

As part of our outreach to the fishing community, the CVOW team presented to the Mid-Atlantic Fishery Management Council (MAFMC) and the Virginia Saltwater Sportfishing Association (VSSA) and is continuing to hold Fisheries Roundtables. You can watch recordings of recent roundtables below.

How and why was this location chosen?

The Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (BOEM) has a multi-step process to identify areas of the Outer Continental Shelf (OCS) that appear most suitable for commercial wind energy activities, while presenting the fewest apparent environmental and user conflicts, including conflicts with the operations of fisheries.
