Martha’s Vineyard Fishermen Drop Cape Wind Lawsuit

July 2nd, 2012 by  

 
The Martha’s Vineyard / Dukes County Fishermen’s Association (MVDCFA) has dropped a federal lawsuit against the Cape Wind offshore wind project, it was recently reported.

According to Martha’s Vineyard Patch, “the Martha’s Vineyard Fishermen and Cape Wind have agreed to work together to support sustainable local Island commercial fisheries and sustainable energy.”

“In exchange for dropping the lawsuit, Cape Wind has agreed to fund a new fishing permit program. The Martha’s Vineyard Permit Bank will enable the purchase of commercial fishing permits for local commercial fishermen’s use and the promotion of ‘Vineyard wild-caught’ seafood.”
