Can anyone please tell me or direct me to where I can find out the spearfishing regulations in South Florida areas shown on the charts as "'fish havens"?

If by some chance you mean just the generic fish havens on the charts and not the actual sanctuaries Bugged posted, there aren't any special restrictions beyond the normal State and Federal regs. They are just on there to note that they are there and concievably to let shrimpers and other netters know not to drag their nets through there due to the obstruction.

Thanks for the info!

So as far as Miami-Dade County is concerned, it would appear that sperafishing for allowable species is permitted everywhere except the Key Biscayne SMZ - am I correct?
