The recreational boating segment of the marine industry saw 672 deaths in 2010, compared with 736 in 2009, according to a report issued by the National Transportation Safety Board.

A rise was reported in several categories, including motorcycles, medium and heavy trucks, buses, rail and pipeline.

The data indicate that overall transportation fatalities decreased to 34,925 in 2010 from 35,994 in 2009.

“Though the NTSB continues to advocate for changes to address human factors, equipment and infrastructure improvements to prevent crashes, we continue to see far too many deaths each year,” NTSB chairman Deborah Hersman said in a statement.
