"Venomous sea snakes mostly inhabit the waters of Australia, Indonesia, Southeast Asia, and India. Some, however, are much more wide-ranging and are found from southern Siberia to the coast of New Zealand and Tasmania, from Cape of Good Hope to Central American Pacific waters. Sailors cruising these waters should be aware (and beware!) of these denizens. Their presence presents a potential danger to swimmers and divers, so it's worth while to have some knowledge of their habits and habitats and of medical treatments available if a crewmember is bitten."
