Catch and Release is a concept followed by us a long time and who has been an increasingly strong impact on how we choose to care for our sport fishing waters. Many waters with heavy fishing pressure or restricted stock has been a Renaissance, thanks to a widespread and well-run C & R fishing. The only problem with catch and release is that it is best applied among pure anglers and it is difficult to obtain such subsistence fishers, recreational anglers and commercial fishermen to support an extensive C & R fish when alternative fishing techniques can make the release impossible.

During the fall, signed and Nicolas Jändel at All About Fly Fishing and Lars Terkildsen on Fish Shop All Fly in Mörrum discussed a new concept which we think complement C & R, which is much easier for all those who use the fishery resource to support. The expression we want to push on and that we have chosen to give a broader definition is Limit your Kill.

The term Limit your Kill stands for an approach to fishing, which means that we anglers take our responsibility for fish resources. Precedes us by example while we build a better footing as we work to influence other actors as subsistence fishers, recreational anglers, commercial fishermen and authorities. All parties need to agree and follow the good example Limit your Kill stands for so that together we help each other to re-create the most viable fishery resource as possible.

 

In practice Limit your Kill to:


Limit its collection of edible fish and fish with a focus on a sustainable angling. It does not take up more food fish in an ecosystem than to a fish population can be considered minimally affected by the socket. It also selects the extent possible the fish are taken up. Really big and well adault individuals of each species carries a strong genetic base that we should seek to preserve and that it is the fish which gives most juveniles at play.
