You are right, there are a lot of grouper spearing video on YouTube - far too many - but they are so boring. The first half of the video is often a long descent using a hand held weight. The spearo points his Speargun into a hole (often marked with an object) and shoots the hidden fish and then tediously ascends. I can't watch them anymore. ....
Which is why it's gaining such momentum on social media. And since no one is impressed when you shoot a bream with a bazooka they all dive deep for the big grouper, which is already labeled as endangered. Both the safety and ecologic margins are traded for youtube views.
Too much depth, not enough hunting. And Shooting grouper seems akin to shooting Wrasse but at depth. Not a fan.
