About this book

Catch and release fishing has a long history in freshwater recreational fisheries as a management tool to reduce the impact of fishing on fish populations. Aside from regulatory requirements, freshwater anglers have long practiced catch-and-release fishing in the interests of promoting conservation-oriented angling. However, in comparison to freshwater, catch and release fishing in marine fisheries is proving more difficult to define relative to its full impact on anglers and use as a fishery management tool. This symposium proceeding brings together information from researchers, fishery managers, coastal resource management and conservation organizations, and angling community leaders, addressing the issues that have arisen in relation to recreational fishing.
