In the 1970s there were on average over 70 boating fatalities a year in Louisiana. In the 1990s the number of Louisiana boating fatalities decreased to an average of 40 per year. Most fatalities involve boaters just riding, skiers, fishermen and women, duck hunters, deer hunters, canoeist, and sailors.
Many victims simply fall overboard or are thrown overboard in a collision. Many deaths and injuries can be avoided by wearing Personal Flotation Devices (Life Jackets) and following some basic rules of boating operation. Various Louisiana agencies, like the Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries and the US Coast Guard set forth the rules of safe boating.
