The same standard applies to offshore wind as onshore turbines, the areas must be prone to prevalent winds for suitability. Past this there are several other considerations, such as potential cost of installation (think water depth) and vulnerability to seismic activity, there is also the provision of feeding the generated electricity into the grid, so shore proximity is key for limiting transmission distance.
And, as with all wind, there is the consideration of the immediate surroundings and wind patterns. I would imagine that it would be best to refrain from establishing off-shore wind farms in known areas of large bird migrations.
