The California Fishermen's Resiliency Association was formed in 2022 to represent the collective interests of Northern California commercial fishermen when addressing the impacts of off-shore wind (OSW) and cable development on the Coast.


Our Goals

2.   MINIMIZE impacts 

  • Seasonality of OSW operations 

  • Establish OSW protocols 

  • Create 24 hour hotline w/ Independent fisheries liaison officer

  • Implement real-time impact adaptive management

3.   MITIGATE impacts that can’t be avoided or minimized

•Last step in process

•Any mitigation fees directed to create long term resilience in the fishing industry


Accomplishing our Goals

  • Create industry-to-industry contractual agreements known as FCBAs

  • Use mitigation fees for a wide variety of infrastructure and organizational projects
