Yes, one example is some of the area around the Iowa River that has been designated as Protected Water Areas. These areas were “legislatively authorized and are designated by the commission after an in-depth study for permanent designation.” The areas were chosen for having outstanding cultural and natural resource values.
Also, many areas of water that are homes to living coral reefs are protected. Coral reefs have suffered so much damage from boats, tourists, and other human interference, that much of the coral is dead or dying. In the Florida Keys, areas of the ocean are roped off with buoys and the treatment of the coral and other marine life is carefully monitored.
