This appendix provides general information on dangerous marine life
that may be encountered in diving operations.
It is beyond the scope of this manual to catalog all types of marine
encounters and potential injury. Planners should consult the recommended references
listed at the end of this appendix for more definite information. Medical
personnel are also a good source of information and should be consulted prior to
operating in unfamiliar waters. A good working knowledge of the marine environment
should preclude lost time and severe injury.
