Let me tell you a story about 4 friends who went spearfishing in Lanzarote on Tuesday, June 2nd, 2020. They went to a beach called “Playa de los Pozillos”, and they didn’t bother to check the map of allowed areas. If they had done it, they would have immediately realized that you’re not allowed to do any spearfishing there.
Then, one of them accidentally shot another in the leg, with the speargun. Yikes! The ambulance had to be called and the patient wouldn’t fit inside it. The firemen arrived, to cut the 1.5-metre spear off with power tools.
Finally, the Guardia Civil also helped the friends by giving them a nice ticket for fishing in the wrong place.
The images can be seen in the link below, and aren’t for the faint-hearted.
