Spearfishing uses elastic powered spearguns and slings, or compressed gas pneumatic powered spearguns, to strike the hunted fish. Specialised techniques and equipment have been developed for various types of aquatic environments and target fish.

Spear fishing may be done using free-diving, snorkelling, or scuba diving techniques.

Spearfishing while using scuba equipment is illegal in some countries. The use of mechanically powered spearguns is also outlawed in some countries and jurisdictions.

The rise in population and people venturing into the sea for thrilling adventure has risen into encounter with shark that sometimes lead to attacks. Australia has a growing record of shark attacks mainly due to adventurous spear fishing.
