Is Spearfishing dangerous?
It can be like most sports and hobbies, even driving a car there is an inherent danger involved. But being cautious, listening to your instructor and applying common sense the risk are almost non existant.
Is Spearfishing cruel?
No, the diver aims to kill the fish instantly with a spine shot which automatically paralyses the fish. If not successful with a spine shot the fish is landed within seconds and killed humanely with a spike to the brain. This method is far more humane then letting a fish flop around on the boat floor or go into a bucket where it basically dies of suffocation after many minutes of suffering.
