Study in Quebec on newC&R fish disease

Biologists are studying a new Salmon disease phenomenon . They are attempting to find out if the recent spots and scars on the top of released fish is due to the
habit of the fisherman giving a kiss on the top of the poor fish's head

Don't sweat the bad casts for they sometimes bring you fish

Science is not common sense. Much of it is devoted to a systematic documentation of what we do not know and understand.

You can catch a lot of fish, and you can keep a lot of fish. But you can't do both very long. Jim Timmins

I feel like I should say something, now that Salar-1 has raised the topic.


Kissing fish during a long moonlit walk while holding hands and chatting amicably..... just grosses me out. Every time I see a picture or video of the 'act', I am reminded that most North American anglers are simply NOT fish people.

Politics. So far the enviro-activists have given catch and release anglers a free pass and the animal rights/fish rights activists have had little impact. I would not count on this comfortable status quo going forward.

Currently you still have lots of 'fish people' and folks like fishery biologists who might understand catch and release as a selective fishing tool but otherwise see current practices as ethically wanting. To understate the case.

At a very minimum, the 'keep 'em wet' convention should minimize the potential for anglers to further play and amuse themselves with the fish as it is about to be released.

The fish kissing thing is just so dumb! Did you know that you can get salmonella poisoning from kissing fish!
