Joining us from Greece for this interview is Vasilis Koroneos a Civil Engineer who is well known for his spearfishing videos. In this interview we talk about target spearfishing species in Greece, types of structure and depth as well as common hunting techniques. There is a huge story about a 40kg Amberjack that takes place over multiple occasions before Vasilis eventually lands the fish, its a very interesting story and displays the predictability that these fish can display. In the Veterans Vault we hear an experienced Med divers educated perspective on the value of developing a sustainable mindset. Enjoy!
