Spearfishing is a popular underwater sport that is widely recognized and practiced in many countries. Underwater fishing is the process of tracking, stalking and catching the fish through observing from above water surface, diving on breath-holding and shooting fish underwater with a speargun.
Use of Self-Contained Underwater Breathing Apparatus (SCUBA) is strictly prohibited. Spearfishing while using SCUBA equipment is considered poaching and illigal in almost all countries of the world.

Spearfishing requires a combination of specialized knowledge and skills. A spearfisher should be familiar with the techniques like how to hold your breath underwater, how to use a speargun, should know habits and characteristics of fish and spearfishing tactics. Knowledge must be also accomponied with skills until they’re entirely automatic. Furthermore, since spearfishing is done by divers holding their breath, a spearfisher must stay in good health and fit by regular exercise and physical activity, as well as, develop ability to tolerate prolonged apnea. Spearfishing can be carried out both in shallow waters and at greater depths. Some experienced spearfishers may be able to hunt at depths up to 30-50 meters and hold breath for up to 3 minutes in dynamic.
There are different types of weapons used in spearfishing. It definitely requires some prior knowledge and practice of how to operate the weapon to ensure safe handling. Safety precautions must be observed when using a speargun. Remember that this is not only a sport equipment, but also dangerous weapon and should be respected as such.
Since spearfishing activities are directly linked to human impact on marine ecosystem, it is highly critical to respect the rules while hunting, as well as, demonstrate consciousness and humanity:
– kill as many fish as you can eat;
– do not fish when the spawn is on;
– you can fish only for those fish species which are permitted for harvesting, not listed in the present Red List or other environmental documents;
– catch adult fish only complying with minimum size limits, never touch juveniles;
– allow fish populations to recover, do not hunt constantly in the same waters.
You should not kill for the sake of killing. Such hunting is commonly condemned.
The activities of underwater hunters are regulated by the “Rules of amateur and sport fishing”, as well as by regulatory acts.
