Video Of The Block Island Wind Turbine Fishing
Wind farms in the US will become large artificial reef systems that anglers and scuba divers can fish and explore.
The Block Island Wind turbines have become an fishery in and of themselves. They are now essentially four artificial reefs teaming with life. Charter captain and anglers are seeing many benefits fishing this structure. The turbines have given the Block Island community independence from diesel generators that used to power the entire island using over a million gallons of diesel fuel annually.
The group Anglers For Offshore Wind Power have been keeping a close eye on this farm since it was built at Block Island. Check out their website for more information.
