the ethics of spearfishing (a quick overview)

This is the microphone I use:
This is my dive mask (with gopro mount):
These are my carbon fiber dive fins:
Great book about learning how to spearfish:
Amazing book about freediving, the ocean, and our connection to these things as humans:
Interesting read on how it’s scientifically proven that being near, in, on or under water can make you happier, healthier, more connected, and better at what you do:
This book is all about big fish, where to find them, and how to spear them. Written by a spearfishing OG, it will inspire you to explore the world, searching for big fish:
William Trubridge can dive to over 100 meters (330 feet) on a single breath of air, without wearing fins. This well-written autobiography explores his journey to become one of the deepest diving humans in the history of the world, and also helps show the potential that we all have inside of ourselves to dive deep, if we practice:
Finally, this book tells a tragic tale of an extremely talented freediver and how dangerous this sport can be, if not practiced safely:
***If you want to learn how to freedive or spearfish, DO NOT TRY IT ALONE. I recommend signing up for a freediving course to learn how to dive safely and find a buddy do dive with 🤙🤙******

    I’m more than likely wrong.. But I remember reading that fish lack the brain capacity to feel pain, so is it unethical to kill what is basically a higher order vegetable? Plus the fish is probably just gonna go get eaten by whale, or... A horse

    Also, fish do not have pain receptors and so when you fish, bow-fish, or spear-fish, the fish only enters a state of shock. Fish are also an essential part of the human diet, providing essential “fatty acids”.

    Commercial fishing is so regulated now its difficult for fishermen to stay in business. People other than you like to go out and eat seafood that don't like to dive. The environmental wackos outlawed gill nets here in Fl. and they are the most selective gear available, almost no by catch. Sensible gear makes a difference, but it has to be commercially viable. Other countries, mostly communist, and socialist countries are the ones doing the most damage to our seas. Development and over population in areas are causing pollution problems that exacerbate water quality issues. Red tide, algae blooms,etc. Red tide in Fl. kill millions more fish than fishermen ever could. Don't lump all commercial fishermen together, I'm not the problem.

    Who cares. Food's food. The literal only way to stop fishing is to destroy the human doing it. Nobody that fishes watched this and thought, "you know what? Im not gonna eat fish anymore. Lent will have to change and fish needs to come off the menu." It is seriously laughable. Personally, I use a stringer that puts a hole on their lips. I can keep a fair amount of fish hooked to a rope in the water so they stay alive a lot longer. That way when i prepare them all up for freezing they stay as fresh as possible. No i don't care what they are thinking lmfao.

    Dumb the reason god created fish in the first place is for us to eat them. Not to let them reproduce to such an extent and just leave them be. The sole reason they are ALIVE is se we can eat them. Besides if we didnt they would probably reproduce to such an extent and eventually surpass the human population and take over the world. That goes for all livestock too not just fish. But I am against the way the animals are treated cruelly in industrial farms for their whole lives then brutally slaughtered in a disgusting manner.

    I disagree with your point about instinct. Humans are vastly different from dogs. Due to our intelligence, a lot of "instincts" aren't instincts, are instead taught. It's not always true, but a good rule of thumb is the higher the intellect of a species, the less instincts there are and vise versa

    Yeah you got to also realize when you eat vegetables how do you make all those from poop can you get that from animals and poop isn't good for water because where's all that you know when or going to go either in the sewer which leads to the ocean and or a lake nearby which all that minore's going to turn into algae and then it's going to stay on top and kill all the coral reef which also kills the fish so there really isn't a good way to eat food either way is bad or good I mean what you do is very good if we all did that maybe we could have healthy diet and we could also farmer-owned animals and you know make it less cruel
