Do you know the official web site? I know it won't be in English, France hates English, but it would be nice to have it.

Re: Worldwide Spearing Regulations Websites

In France/ Corsica all species are allowed except groupers ( Epinephelus family) and it matters little the fish size/quantity. A very proficient spearo go back home after about 6 h(or more) diving with about 6/8 fish on average, each fish weighting about 3/7 lbs. Other than the fish is rare, distrustfull, cunning and deep...It's a hard job for the amateurs! This context is just about the same in Italy, Spain...
In Turkey regulations allow gouper spearing but greater than 2 lbs... forbid using a torch, scuba.
Here a recent pic from Italy showing that sometime the fish has a "Florida " size:

Re: Worldwide Spearing Regulations Websites

Plan to do a spearfishing trip to Guinea "Guinée" (West Africa) ? There is not any reg. in this country! Except the fact that a civil war is begining, this country has wel known spots for spearfishing.
