While chatting to dive buddies on diving in Australia and NewZealand, a buddy commented that in those countries you are allowed to spearfish and remove crafish(lobster) from the sea on SCUBA. In south Africa we are very strict on the fact that we can only spear or collect lobster doing breath hold diving. Why are the rst of the world doing it on SCUBA? In my own country we can not remove all with breath hold diving but criminal elements with SCUBA has destroyed much of our resources. Mostly these resources are then smuggled out to the Far East as afrodisiacs. (imagine it me enjoying an afrodisiac as a child:-)) What are your feelings about it?
