    Yes, provided you have the required permits, and its not a MPA or other restricted area.

    I was under the impression you are not allowed to collect using scuba gear.

    Nopes, SCUBA gear is permitted for marine collection - it's about the only exclusion so lets not mess it up by breaking the quota rules, etc!

    Yes for Marine Aquarium fish.

    No for creyfish, spearfishing etc.
