Florida Deep-sea Fishing And Charter Fishing Accidents

Deep-Sea Fishing typically occurs when water depths are at 30 meters or more. Being able to fish in deeper waters allows for a bigger assortment of fish to choose from. A popular form of sport angling, it is also referred to as offshore boat fishing or big game fishing. Much different than typically shallow water fishing, deep sea fishing involves catching fish like tuna, swordfish, sharks, and marlins.

The coast of Florida offers some of the best Deep Sea Fishing spots in the world. Right off the shores of Miami, Fort Lauderdale, and West Palm Beach, the seas are teeming with big game fish: Bluefin tuna, dolphin fish, marlin and more. According the a Survey for the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, Florida is ranked No. 1 in the nation for saltwater anglers. This has lead to a big economic impact. It is estimated that saltwater recreational fishing industry accounts for 7.6 billion and supports over 100,000 jobs.
