Yellowtail, bonita, and barracuda are pelagic species and by no means endangered. A freediver is generally an ethic water enthusiast who only takes what he can consume. He/she selects the catch rather than bait it up with a hook or wrap it into a net w/o seeing it. They are not spearos or killers, but athletes who also enjoy a good, healthy fish dinner. Many people eat fish, freedivers or not. The fish sold at stores is usually caught in purse seines. Undesired species are tossed overboard (usually dead) as bycatch. The freediving community's impact on the decline of fish populations is non-existent.
If you are a true vegetarian please accept my apologies otherwise please consider my thoughts.
I would be delighted to talk to you about this in person and invite you along on one of our freediving trips with the Fathomeers, so you can see first hand what this sport and the people are all about. Please give me a call at (818)400-7439.
