Spearfishing makes fishes more timid

Spearfishing makes fishes more timid

Fisheries scientists have studied the response of fish in the Mediterranean Sea to spearfishing. The fish are able to finely discriminate if divers carry a speargun or not. They adjust their escape behavior and keep a safe distance outside the shooting range. This is good for the fish and a challenge for the spearfisher.
