I've seen far too many scuba morons on local boats come up with sheepshead and small calicos. There is no sport in killing a fish that you can literally pet, like a sheepshead. I've had large calico, sheepshead, and even GBSB follow me on dives. I was sickened to hear that a spearhead shot an angel shark - these are rare, gentle and beautiful creatures.
I believe that spearfishing on scuba should be banned. Maybe even lobster hunting on scuba (like in the Bahamas). Freediving evens the odds and assures that the take is reasonable.
