Photo: Hunting for fish for genetic analyses using a pole spear in Papua New Guinea. I have found the pole spear to be the easiest instrument to catch samples. It is light, fast, not cumbersome, and can spear a variety of sizes. It is also collapsable making it very easy to travel with. Photo credit: Ed Roberts.
