For safe harvesting, follow our advice:

  • First and foremost: learn to swim. Nearly two million people of all ages learn to swim every year.
  • It is important to supervise children very closely when they are in the water.
  • Inexperienced swimmers must wear life jackets approved by the United States Coast Guard at all times.
