Two divers have come under fire from social media after a video showing them spearfishing in Mu Koh Chumphon National Park in Chumphon province was posted online.

The clip, featuring the pair swimming with spearguns at Hin Pae, a popular diving site, on Tuesday drew a barrage of criticism and condemnation.

The video was posted on Facebook and went viral online.

Facebook user Tep Keerati wrote: “While my boat was moored at Hin Pae at 2.43pm (on Tuesday), I saw two divers acting suspiciously. I then used my mobile phone to videotape what they were doing, and found out they were using spearguns to catch fish in the national park. It’s a shameless act doing such a thing. They had at least five big pla mor. I took photos as evidence.''

He urged people to share his post and notify authorities to take action against the two men.
