Dedicated to research, communication, and regional collaboration on offshore wind development and fisheries 

The Challenge

Offshore wind is expanding along the East Coast of the U.S. – deepening interest among all parties active in these waters in better understanding the interactions between offshore wind and ecosystems in the region. 

With wind projects spanning multiple states and many organizations embarking on research, a coordinated approach is needed to ensure that credible research is developed and shared.


The Responsible Offshore Science Alliance (ROSA), founded in 2019, is a nonprofit organization that seeks to advance regional research and monitoring of fisheries and offshore wind interactions through collaboration and cooperation.  


ROSA’s objective is to be a trusted resource that enables scientific research, increases efficiency, deepens understanding, and facilitates collaboration.
