Spearfishing Regs

Hi All I'm starting to get into diving more and looking to do some spearfishing as something different but for the life of me I cant find the official regulations on catch limits..

I've searched the Fisheries WA website for evenings on end and I've come up empty handed. The most I can make of it is the same rules apply for spearos as fisho's but I have heard all sorts of rumours and stories from different people saying that spearfishing on compressed air will be banned !! and all other manner of new rules coming out ...

Does anyone know the official regs and can point me to them in writing ???

Cheers fishfish....

The reason you havent found it on the website is because theres no difference between spearos and fishos.

Spearing on tanks is allowed, just not in certain marine parks
