Among the states, Florida in particular has much to lose if our Oceans continue to be polluted and unregulated. The ocean is the backbone of Florida's economy, with over $63 billion generated by tourism in 2005 and the creation of more than 944,000 jobs. Florida is the number-one SCUBA diving destination in the United States and produces many of the world's top surfers. Florida's recreational fishery is among the largest in the country with expenditures of $8.3 billion, including everything from food, lodging, bait, charter, equipment, and gas.
