Spearfishing holds hidden dangers
February 25, 2017 Local News Leave a comment

By Andreas Izamis

The tragic events surrounding the death of 31-year-old Andreas Yiangou of Limassol, who went spearfishing last Saturday off Pomos, brought to light the dangers associated with the sport and free-diving in general.

At the end of this article it mentions that a licence is required to to go spearfishing.

I have been snorkeling around Cyprus using a speargun on occasions, with little sucess to be truthful.

I have never heard of a spearfishing licence....does any expat have one?

And all the important bits are in Greek. Wait another 10 years and I might be able to translate it myself!

Did some "trolling" around Google there one post said no license required, the next confirmed eu 34 per year for spearfishing passport details required.

I will leave the speargun behind and pick up a couple of bream from the fish shop can't see me exceeding the shop price in a season and you can't miss when they are packed in ice.

That's a fee for the boat license, another for high speed license, and a radio license, fishing from the boat license, and a spear fishing license.

No wonder there so few fish, the first 100 fish belong to the government so to break even you need to be a professional.
