In keeping with the need for change, and through the voluntary efforts of divers and other individuals who wish to see freediving and spearfishing reach it’s highest possible standards of excellence.
The mission of the Spearfishing Ireland is to promote ethical, safe and sportsmanlike spearfishing practices, to encourage and support a sense of environmental responsibility among divers, to provide basic spearfishing guidelines for use in other spearfishing activities, and to participate in educational and scientific programs.
Promote the highest ethical standards of sportsmanship for spearfishing in Ireland;
Maintain on-going dialogue with spearfishers all over the Ireland, and consider the international community in its decision making processes;
Work with the scientific community, fisheries management organizations, fish and game departments, together with spearfishing clubs around the world, to increase our knowledge of the environment, as well as to educate and encourage environmental responsibility among divers and the public;
It is hoped that the Spearfishing Ireland will motivate freedivers to participate not only in a record attempt, but also in the selective and honorable sport of spearfishing
