Is there any way to turn them off

 

I'm talking about the ones in straight patterns, not the tops of the waves

I think those are supposed to simulate "waves", while the animated parts simulate "swells".  At sea, you can have both waves and swells, and they don't always travel in the same direction.

 

Or it could visually simulate the "angel hair" effect that occurs at sea during strong winds.

 

At any rate, don't know how to reliably "turn them off", as that involves manually searching through texture files and removing/renaming it, and I'm not certain removing that particular texture won't have negative effects in other aquatic regions...
