Spearfishing is the most environmentally sustainable way to harvest a fish for the table and you know exactly where your food comes from which is great but there are laws governing it that needs to be followed at all times.
A spearfishing licence can be bought at any post office and is valid for a year from purchase date and must be either on boat you are diving from or in your car at the beach.
Same as above but valid for one season only , season is from the first day of march till the last day of October and only 8 legal size crayfish may be in your possession at any time
Ignorance of the law is no excuse
Please make sure to get a copy of the regulations regarding spearfishing as it is too much to list here, it can be found @ www.daff.gov.za
