Rockford “Rocky” Weitz is a Professor of Practice and Director of the Maritime Studies Program at The Fletcher School at Tufts University. He teaches courses in Global Maritime Affairs and Maritime Security. His Tisch Faculty Fellow project will explore the possibility of a Tufts University-led stakeholder engagement effort to support the offshore wind energy industry in New England. The project involves engaging the fishing industry in Massachusetts and Maine, local governments, port authorities, environmental groups, and other stakeholders to identify creative solutions to potential hurdles to offshore wind development in New England. Northeast fisheries face an existential threat from overfishing and ocean warming, so they need a vision for their own future independent of offshore wind. The offshore wind industry might consider engaging the fishing industry in a regional and comprehensive way – rather than a project-by-project basis – that tries to build a shared consensus on a sustainable future for both industries.
