New Jersey wind port faces new obstacle — sturgeon  

Credit:  By Ry Rivard and Marie J. French | Politico | 07/25/2022 | www.politico.com ~~

New Jersey’s hopes to quickly grow its offshore wind industry could face a new obstacle – endangered sturgeon in the Delaware River. The Delaware Riverkeeper Network plans to sue the federal government for failing to consider how construction and operation of the New Jersey “wind port” in Lower Alloways Creek could harm fish. There are likely just 125 to 250 adult sturgeon left in the river, once home to hundreds of thousands of the fish and the center of the American caviar industry. The port to be built along the river in Salem County is key to Gov. Phil Murphy’s plan to promote the growth of the offshore wind sector, and the state is investing $250 million to get it up and running by the end of 2023. The South Jersey port is expected to be a land-based hub for wind farm infrastructure, including activities needed to supply material to the state’s first offshore project, Ørsted’s Ocean Wind 1.
