Bill McElroy, of the Rhode Island Lobstermen's Association, was initially a skeptic of offshore wind. "At this point I have to say it's been a pleasure to work with Deepwater Wind," McElroy said. He called Deepwater Wind "a good corporate citizen" and praised them for engaging the fishing community.
"They've got plenty of people in the press that are happy to give them a hard time. I thought it would be good to point out they are trying to do some good as well," McElroy said.

The vote in favor of gauge increases rather than a closure came as a considerable relief to Bill McElroy of the Rhode Island Lobstermen's Association, who believes fishing mortality in Area 2 is already down significantly.

"It's very likely that what we're doing now - either voluntarily or out of economic distress - will get us to where we need to go," McElroy explained.
"When you try to put us in a bin of 920,000 pounds, I have a problem with that," he said.
