I don't know if anyone watched this tonight but there was a section on off shore wind farms, they have created a natural marine reserve as ships/trawlers avoid the area and fish stocks have responded accordingly. Also the base of the turbines buried in the sea bed are protected by piles of rocks packed around them, these have been colonized by anemone and coral, so renewable energy, and other environmental benefits.

Sorry I should have said,

It was on bbc2, and called the power of the east, third of the series.
The part on wind is about 13 minutes in and lasts about 7 minutes, the wind farm featured is the one just off Yarmouth.

This was a very interesting series that covered many different aspects of the marine environment. It did not
fall into the usual traps around bemoaning that things are not what they used to be, but took a fairly
balanced view about the effects of human activity on the sea, nor did it wallow in Britain's industrial past
like so much of today's TV programming.

I was amazed by the extent to which even relatively modern structures such as the supports of wind turbines
have become colonised with marine life. Presumably there are so many obstructions around these that trawling
with nets in their vicinity would be a no-no, so we can probably look forward to the areas around offshore
windfarms becoming marine nature reserves over time.

He had bought a large map representing the sea,
  Without the least vestige of land:
And the crew were much pleased when they found it to be
  A map they could all understand.
