The scuba diving industry is prominent in Florida, as residents and tourists can enjoy recreational scuba diving and the beauty of natural and artificial reefs year round. As with any adventure sport, scuba diving involves some risks. In the U.S., the Divers Alert Network (DAN) identifies more than 1K diving-related injuries annually, with over 10% of those being fatal, and with Florida having the largest number of scuba fatalities, compared to other U.S. states. Over a ten year period, scuba diving accidents have been responsible for 235 deaths in Florida, according to DAN's Annual Diving Report. Throughout one year, for almost half of the U.S. fatal dives, the primary activity (when it was reported) was pleasure or sightseeing.
