Abstract
Empirical diving techniques used by commercial sea harvesters have largely developed through many years of trial and error. In many cases, these techniques, consisting of multiple repetitive dives, have resulted in apparently safe diving schedules even though they do not obey safe diving practices as specified by deterministic decompression models that are commonly used for developing normal diving tables or dive computers. In fact, conventional methods for calculating dive profiles or repetitive dives would make such dives not feasible since the decompression requirements would be prohibitive. In other cases of decompression sickness (DCS) because of inadequate decompression times.
