Re: Suggestion for DNR Link Sticky

Pat I agree. It looks like some mod has allready changed the title partially to Worldwide Spearing Rules Websites but whoever you were you need to change it where the title shows up under the forum list.
Pat I don't think I can do that, or at least I don't know how to.

Thank you for your response.
So as a tourist would I be able to do any type of fishing?
Thanks

Dear Allen:

The regulations are indirect. Using a speargun etc. is going equiped with the intent to fish. In order to fish you need a fishing license which can only be obtained by residents and Belizeans. You are right, the regulation is not clear but should be addressed with the redrafting of our fishing regulations.

Any other queries do not hesitate to contact me.

Regards

James

Dear Sir,
Thank you for your response quoted below. But I can't locate anywhere it says whether you can or can't spear while freediving, not on scuba, and what equipment is allowable. ie spearguns, hawaian slig, polespear etc. would you please direct me to the exact location of the rules pertaining to this.
Thank You

Respectfully

Allen Hendrick

Re: Worldwide Spearing Regulations Websites

Thank's Quetzal for: "http://www.apneamagazine.com/articolo.php/516"

This italian article describes only new penalties (for ex: in selling the fish, using tank..). Regulations in Italy and in Spain/ Porugal are about the same as in France. I Have some contacts in countries close to Mediterranean Sea and I'll check thoroughly.
NO SCUBA is a common/ historical basis in these countries.
