Spearfishing, is it an ethical way to fish?

Spearfishing%2C+is+it+an+ethical+way+to+fish%3F

JUPITER, FL – For centuries, spearfishing has been a way to gather food but recently it has turned into a recreational activity.

Many have wondered if spearfishing is a sustainable practice or if it hurts the environment. Spearfishing involves catching one fish at a time. Once a fish is caught the diver must leave the area immediately in order to not encounter sharks. Doing this makes sure that one area is not greatly affected and the fish in that area can reproduce without taking heavy losses. When a diver spearfishes, the fish dies almost immediately so that they do not suffer for a long amount of time. This method, unlike fishing, grants the fish an almost immediate death, which is somewhat humane.

All in all, spearfishing is a sustainable practice that allows for fishermen to catch fish without damaging the environment.
