Verrrrry Interesting this discussion on spearfishing!
(This should have been a reply to the thread Spearfishing, Good or Bad, but it sneaked off to the wrong place, sorrrrry!)

As a wildlife manager I must say that this is the key to the whole thing: think ecologically.

First of all: know your prey.
(abundance, reproduction strategy, population size, etc...)

Second: know their relation to their habitat (the area where they live and the effect they have on that area).

Third: pick the right individual

And last: make a clean kill and yell Gotha!!!! (preferably without drowning yourself in the process...)

Cheers,

Lynn :D

lynn,

are we talking about strategies at our local pub? i think if people were this refined in their tactics, the divorce rate would be much lower. ;)

yes, the topic of pulling the trigger in an ethical manner is larger than one can imagine. almost all prominent spearos out there will preface any of their techniques with an issue in ecology. and, i think more and more younger guru's are starting to follow their lead.

it's a delicate issue, but important nonetheless. it would be nice to continue the discussion on how people are practicing/promoting conservation in their parts of the world.

later,
anderson
