5C-1.1 Purpose. This appendix provides general information on dangerous marine life that may be encountered in diving operations.
5C-1.2 Scope. 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.
