The gorgeous coasts of the Golden State hold a special place in our hearts. Careful use of these beautiful and fragile environments will ensure that they remain open to the sport of freediving and spearfishing. The DFG sets the standards that freedivers follow while selecting a catch for dinner. Many choose to be even more selective and considerate of ocean resources following higher self-imposed standards. Know the regulations thoroughly before you go: Ocean Sportfishing. There is also a great collection of Fish ID charts.
