With over one million registered boats in Florida, and 1/2 a million more boats from other states that also utilize Florida's waterways, there is a real concern for the well-being of the public, manatees, and other aquatic wildlife.

Speedboat collisions and propeller maiming are the major cause for manatee deaths.
