NY releases study on coastal waters

Jul 11th, 2013 | By | Category: Water

A study of New York’s coastal waters, released Wednesday by the Department of State, is intended to help guide the eventual placement of offshore wind turbines.

The study draws from four reports conducted for the department, and identifies areas significant to commercial fishing and recreation, identifies endangered species like right whales, sea turtles and Atlantic sturgeon, and includes data meant to predict where seabirds and other species might be harmed by wind power generators.
