Any posinous/dangerous sea creatures? : LUSENET : About Hawaii : One Thread

Are there any poisonous or dangerous sea creatures/fish?

-- Donna Hudson (, January 28, 1999


Nothing really. There are some poisonous fish, but rare. Haven't heard of any case of someone dying from them. Just like sharks, they are out there, but for the amount of ocean activities that go on in Hawaii, you only hear of a shark bite, every year and a half or so. Can count on your hands the number of deaths by shark attack.

I believe that more people worldwide are injured by rays than sharks,sea mammals or other fish.
