Americans can now preview what’s in store for coastal communities, and the fish many depend on, as offshore wind development builds steam in the U.S. The American Wind Energy Association (AWEA) and the Special Initiative on Offshore Wind (SIOW), based at the University of Delaware, released a new video today that features never-before-seen underwater footage of fish feeding at America’s first offshore wind farm, as well as testimonials from local recreational fishermen and charter captains.
