Target Fish

Maui is home to hundreds of species of fish. Many native, some invasive. The most important part of spearfishing in Maui is taking advantage of the selective hunting it offers. We want to target specific fish that will in turn keep our reef balanced. Check out some of our target fish and do your part to protect the delicate balance of our reef system by sticking to regulations and targeting invasive species.
