My initial thought has to do with the obvious backscatter issue.  You can solve this in a few ways.  First, you could lose to flash from the equation altogether.  If you are using a strobe and still getting scatter, try moving the strobe away from the lens.  Finally, a second strobe to help cancel out the scatter from the first would be the best option.

Thanks Jeff.  Yes the backscatter is often a problem unless you have really good water clarity.  Two strobes, I never knew they wouls cancel.  How does that work?  Al.

I've never tried two strobes, so I'm no expert.  Two strobes will help illuminate both sides of those particles better, cutting back on the reflective properties.  Also, you can go wide which enables you to get closer to the subject while keeping everything in frame.  This reduces the amount of particles between you and your subject.  The best option is to use ambient light when it is available.
