Aug 12 2020 - Is it weird for fishers to release fish? Not at all. It’s actually smart to let some fish go back to the ocean: fish that are under the minimum size limit or are protected during their spawning season. Fishers who catch them and release them alive give them a chance to reproduce and become bigger. Also, fish that are poisonous or not edible should go back to the ocean because they help keep the reefs alive and healthy.
This training video gives tips to build and use descending gear to allow fishers to send a live fish back down to the bottom. Ready? Let them go!
