I am Planning to be in Iran in November on the Kish Island and in the Gulf of Chiriqui in Panama in January. Does any one know any thing about the fish species, locations and appropriate gear for either of these two places?
Thank you all for your responses.

110 cm euro gun will do ya well. a 5mm wetsuit is norm for winter spearing in the ARABIAN gulf. grouper, macks, trevally galore especially around this time of the year.

check out www.fishbase.com and it should have everything you might want to know ;)

Thank you for the info.
I am looking forward to going to the PERSIAN gulf.
I have info about fishing from the UAE side but not so sure about the terrain and fish from the Iran side.

Mani the western side of the Gulf refers to it as ARABIAN, while obviously in Iran it is refered to as PERSIAN. make sure you keep this in mind for some of the people from the khaleej (gulf) will get offended if you mix this up. I suggest that you take along shaft and wishbones, mask straps, and everything you will need in terms of gear or risk paying higher prices than what you normally would in the US.

Thank you for the geography lesson Mishu1984. If you don't mind emailing me your phone number to my email at [email protected] I would appreciate it. This way I would be able to call you and ask you other questions since it is easier than this forum format.
I look forward to hearing from you
Mani

I am panamenian and I spear dive, I know the islands in the gulf of chiriqui in panama, I have been there many times, yo can locate me to my email in panama to guide you.

If you come, you will be more than satisfied because the marine life is so abundant you wont believe your eyes, huge amberjacks, broomtails groupers, cubera snappers, tuna, etc, etc.

Best regards

Enrique
