Importance of Books and Field Guides for all (Especially Harvesters and Spearfishers):

Having local species knowledge of the creatures within the waters we explore and an understanding of the local environments we visit allows us a greater experience beneath the surface. Be it for freediving, snorkelling, spearfishing or scuba diving reasons, anyone can benefit from the knowledge in these books and field guides in supporting the enjoyment of your next underwater adventure.

As Freedive-Harvesters and Spearfishers it’s important to remember the importance and power that knowledge gives you. Knowing your target species. Knowing how to differentiate species. Understanding species life cycles and the relationships they have with the environments in which they live. All of these pieces of information are the base and foundation of the knowledge a true Sustainable and Ethical Harvester possesses.
