This was the most important part of his post:
One person, whose role I understood to be that of a neutral party trying to help facilitate
dialogue among various stakeholders, commented that the government agencies and the
fishermen seem to be “talking past one another”. This was our most significant take-away from the meeting. It was happening right there before our eyes. My wife, who attended with me, commented about the reaction of the BOEM Chief of the Renewable Energy Programs office, during the comments by the fisherman. The Director had daggers coming from her eyes, aimed directly at the few fishermen who rose to speak.”
everyone is talking past each other. We have a tragedy of the commons coming and unless all parties communicate clearly and come up with mutual solutions - everyone loses.
