Yes, this is the idea.

My experience is that fisherman coops, similar to this one for network
operators, are contacted during the desk top study "DTS" phase so that
the parties can negotiate the best routes insuring that fisheries
aren't disrupted or displaced and that the cable finds an agreed upon
and effective route around risks that the fisherman have unique views
into. There's also public permitting processes that occur and you want
harmony. Groups of people angry at your submarine cable is not a good
way to start a business and a submarine cable is a business (see "Rod
Beck" ;-P )
