Release the fish you catch became something common for some of us. Yet this method is sometimes misunderstood, maligned and No-kill is even banned in several countries. Keep the fish you catch remained a gesture for the rest of the fish population. A heresy for some extremists, normal will tell others. What to think of all this? I’ll try to walk around, to give my opinion on this controversial subject that makes it difficult to objectivity.
The No-Kill a passing fad?
“No-Kill”, “Catch & Release” or even “Catch and release” exists for many years.
Put into practice in the North American in the middle of the 20th century and in Europe by the Anglo-Saxons in the early 1980s, the concept developed and extended gradually. First practiced by fly and the shot carp fishermen through insurancejust.com, today it is found everywhere: fishing lures, handled dead, at the toc, etc…
The principle is simple, it is to consider the fish as a partner of sport and not as a prey. Rem you tell me since in the normal course of things humans eat fish! Yet, we can see a number of benefits! Preservation of aquatic environment, possibility to catch a trophy fish several times, the respect of a being living and don’t fail, the beauty of the gesture! In addition many studies show that more than 90 percent of the fish survive if they are handled properly.
Let’s talk about the beauty of the gesture and the manipulation precisely. Countless numbers of fishermen, often young or ill-informed release fish damaged or dying; What’s the point? This is where the No-Kill has its limits. That is why we cannot too much advise you a delicate grip if you want to release your catch. The first step is to get wet hands and do not ask fish on dry soils or minerals, this process allows to preserve the protective mucus that they carry. The second is do not use medium type boga or even less gaffe that hurt your captures and exposed to parasites and enter them without bend them or crush them. In the “release” think to re – gently oxygenate the fish if they are tired or hand shock them if they suffered a severe depression due to a deep socket.
Take his fish
Other hand, fishing is the basis for a single reason: to feed. The thing that (fortunately) is no longer the case. However should we show a sinner who keeps his finger because its fun to him eating the trout that has absolutely nothing to do with this blue thing proposed in fish? Or still the kid who wants to please his grand parents claiming him on each visit “a perch for Christmas? No I don’t think so.
Keep his catch or a part of them does not constitute an act of barbarism and does not endanger the environment as long as the gesture is made with reason. On the other hand, once again extremism comes to get involved and I do not hesitate to throw the stone to him who fills his freezer or his trash.
Here too there are rules of common sense. Keep your injured, tired or deep quilted fish rather than one in great shape ready to fight again. Choose them according to their size with respect to the environment as well as to sexual maturity. A Pike of 80 for example in a medium-sized Lake will be a perfect player that will perfectly ensure his offspring and the future of our fishing. Prefer the fish in large numbers in the place or you are, unlike Pike precisely who sees its people side, Zander and perch fish whose future is not threatened and that more will be more pleasant on the plate.
So what to do?
The only thing to do is to have respect for the natural environment. That one rejects his fish or are collected, must do it intelligently and not fall into extremes. And respect for the environment is not just the fish. I take this opportunity to raise you to the fact that to preserve our resources and our landscapes there is much to do; pick up your garbage (and those you find why not), do not throw your cigarette butts, avoid spawning during sensitive seasons and especially but then especially explode you fishing!
