    Is spearfishing legal in the park? Shallow water blackout is poorly addressed here, but then it's difficult to explain in a news story, even if a reporter understood.

    There's some restricted patches, but legal spots are still easy to kayak to from shore. Lionfish is exempted for spearing also in areas. The problem always has been dirty viz.

    Guaranteed it was an illegal spearfishing activity.
