Fishermen lobby for new spot for proposed Long Island wind farm #NY

08:43 Jan 16 2017 Stonington, CT, USA

Stonington – In Joe Gilbert’s view, fishermen like him shouldn’t have to compete with wind farms for a piece of the ocean. “We’re not anti-wind farm,” Gilbert said this past week. “But we don’t want to trade one renewable resource – fish – for another one – wind. They can both exist.” Gilbert is the owner of Empire Fisheries, which has four scallop and squid fishing boats based at the Town Dock. He’s also a member of the board of the Fisheries Survival Fund, . . .
