It seems as though the foundations of the Block Island Wind Farm and maritime life can not only co-exist, but perhaps even flourish, together.
That was the message conveyed by Deepwater Wind and the American Wind Energy Association during a webinar with journalists held on Feb. 14. A video that played during the call included testimonials from recreational fishermen and footage of fish feeding at the base of one of the Block Island Wind Farm’s 110-foot tall steel turbine foundations, which have created an artificial reef teeming with marine life.
