Spearfishing Information

Spearfishing is an ancient method of fishing that has been used throughout the world for millennia. Early civilizations were familiar with the custom of spearing fish from rivers and streams using sharpened sticks.

Today, modern spearfishing makes use of elastic powered spearguns and slings, or compressed gas pneumatic powered spearguns, to strike the hunted fish. Specialized techniques and equipment have been developed for various types of aquatic environments and target fish.

Spearfishing may be done using free-diving, snorkeling, or scuba diving techniques. The use of mechanically powered spearguns is outlawed in some jurisdictions. Spearfishing is highly selective, uses no bait and has no by-catch. With education and proper regulations, spearfishing can be the most ecologically sustainable form of fishing.
