I like the idea, just not sure how you can execute it without damaging the ecosystem even more so than we do on land. It seems like the footprint required for the benefit doesn't add up. I hadn't even thought of the huge maintenance requirements from the sea water exposure. What about noise pollution and the affects on sea life?
