Spearfishing licensing in Spain? (help)

So I'll say right off the bat I've never done spearfishing before as I live in the UK and the coastline near where I live is too murky to hunt in as well as just being cold, that said I've recently booked a holiday to Cala de Mijas in Spain for the summer which looks like a pretty good place to start out given how good the waters are for shore diving.

My question:
-Are there any laws/regulations I should know about before leaving?
I understand that I may need a fishing licence but I don't know either how to get one or if there's a specific type of license I'd need.

-Are there any regulations on the type of equipment you can use? I'm thinking of getting a pole spear as they look like more of a challenge and are apparently better for shore diving.

-I'm also thinking of getting a small diving knife (You know, in case I mess up and almost kill myself drowning) is that legal?

-Are the regulations on the types/ numbers of fish I can catch and is there a specific time of the year I can or can't?

I've also gathered that free diving spearfishing is legal there while scuba fishing isn't (which won't be a problem anyway)

If anyone could give me some info on the subject or link me to anywhere else that can I'd appreciate it.
