Spearfishing

Spearfishing is a form of freediving and fishing that has been popular since the early civilization. Early humanity used to fish with sharped sticks in rivers and lakes as a means of fishing.

Modern spearfishing has evolved somewhat with elastic-band and compressed gas powered spearguns used to hunt fish with specialized techniques and equipment employed depending on the environment such as blue-water or freshwater hunting.

We focus on sustainable spearfishing which means being highly selective in what you catch and only what you can eat.
