State Spearfishing Records

The Florida Skin Divers Association is proud to announce the official FSDA State Spearfishing Records..

Submissions will be accepted for the establishment of official state spearfishing records for the state of Florida (state and federal waters only, excluding international waters). Submission rules and standards for FL state records will follow the rules, standards and guidelines set forth for determining world spearfishing records by IUSA.(see link)

An official IUSA world record taken exclusively in Florida state and federal waters may be submitted by the record holder for Florida State Records under the same procedures as new submissions, but the submission must follow all documentation requirements, including providing the complete, original FSDA record submission showing the fish was taken in Florida state or federal waters and verifying the submission with FSDA. Please note, there will be no state record for any fish that are not currently legal to spear in Florida waters, such as freshwater species and prohibited species.

For any questions please contact FSDA records chair Bill Van Deman at or call text him at 317-412-2626.

Please mail complete application and payment to FSDA at:  FSDA, PO Box 40493, St. Petersburg, FL, 33743-0493
