Last month, CSA’s marine mammal and ocean sound director Mary Jo Barkaszi attended the New York State Energy Research and Development (NYSERDA) State of the Science for Offshore Wind workshop held in Long Island, NY, hosted by the Biodiversity Research Institute. The workshop engaged state and federal agencies, offshore wind developers, fisheries, researchers, and consultants in an intensive summary of what is currently known about environmental concerns surrounding offshore wind development. The workshop highlighted several large-scale projects funded by NYSERDA in cooperation with federal agencies as well as case studies from Europe which leveraged 20+ years of experience in offshore wind to the emerging development in US waters. NYSERDA has been a leader in promoting both science and development in the offshore wind market. The timing of the workshop was ideal given the recent surge in state commitments to power purchase agreements for offshore wind and hugely successful lease sales for wind areas off the eastern seaboard. In response to the workshop attendance, Barkaszi commented, “Clearly, the offshore wind industry is here to stay, and it is an incredibly exciting time to be working with such a progressive industry that will play a large role in clean energy and energy independence.” CSA currently supports several offshore wind projects through and continues to develop capacity in that marketplace. Notably, our recent opening of a New England office will be key in supporting the US offshore wind market for what appears to be many years to come.

Tis the season to be grateful! At CSA Ocean Sciences Inc. (CSA), we believe it is not what you have but what you give! That is why the CSA family came together to collect toys for the “1,000 Toys for 1,000 Smiles” campaign supporting the Guardians for New Futures. Guardians for New Futures supports the needs of abused and neglected children by providing toys for abused and foster children who live right here on the Treasure Coast. Santa Claus and the Coast 101.3 FM van came to CSA’s Headquarters on Monday December 10th in Stuart Florida to pick up the toys, spread some Holiday cheer, and pose for a quick photo with some of the CSA staff!
CSA has participated annually in Holiday toy drives for more than 10 years, benefiting children and families on the Treasure Coast.
During “Norway Brazil Week 2018” in Rio de Janeiro (https://norwaybrazilweek.com.br/), a Round Table event was held to emphasize and strengthen the successful cooperation between Brazil and Norway, particularly with respect to innovation in offshore and deep sea environmental characterization, monitoring, and conservation.
This event recognizes the opportunity for the two countries to share knowledge and collaborate to improve mapping, monitoring, data collection, and impact assessment in the marine environment.
