I also support those values..
I release all billfish, and fish that are not good eating or not sustainable like kingies, Queenies, all tuna apart from YFT, all bottomfish, except the odd cob if we get it at Zini.
I do teach responsible fishing.
It's a fact that the feeling you feel after releasing a fish beats taking it out any day.

but I do need to add something that I have mentioned in the past.

I like fish, I eat fish, I take fish to eat too. Will keep doing so, but it will be responsible, and it will be from pelagic species that are fast growing like dorado and couta.

I'd rather eat fish that I have caught (sustainable methods) than release fish just to go eat it at ocean basket where you do not know how they caught it and by what method.

If this is in contrast to the UA ethos then so be it but I doubt it. (Admin ??)

I agree with you Jean, nothing wrong with taking a fish for the pot in a responsible way.

I'm in full support of the ethos!
I always release fish, unless they die during a fight, or sustain fatal injuries during the fight.

THANK YOU Admin,

Fully support this.

Being responsible does not mean you cannot keep a fish for the pan or braai, but stocking a freezer: AIKONA!

O Ja. Welcome back Sailor!!

100% support for C&R.

100% support for sustainable fishing.

But if a fish dies during the fight please bring it back don't leave it floating around.

I support this 100%
 
But let do it responsibility e.g like fighting a game fish (Natal snoek, couta, Queen fish and Tuna etc) on super light for two hours and then try and put it back in the water, and find it floating later. Best make sure that it realy still alive and strong by waiting a bit longer.
So what the best salution ban all light line fishing 2kg to 5kg ?
 
 Also what about all these fishing comps, one just have to go to a weight in and see all the small fish being weighed e.g 3-6kg couta, 1-3kg Queen makrel  and 1-4kg Bonnies etc
 So what best, don't enter comps? As most majour brands support them e.g Yamaha, Landrover etc
 
Will keep some fish for my pan and the children homes....

Caught on Sunday, both fishies were released plus minus 70cm each, much more fullfilling than having them for dinner.

Thanks Reefs, it's refreshing to see UA advocating catch and release, definately has motivated me to be more pro-active. :uarocks

Behind it 100%. Its really sad when you see people catching blacktail and stumpies that are smaller than your palm and putting it in the bag. I haven't even caught a steenie and by the time I go down to the coast again, they'll probably not be their anymore.

As a Bass Angler I would say that 99% of our community is behind the Catch and Release Ethos. 
 
I was very surprised to see how many other disciplines are not, they will fill bakkies with freezers on the back with fish so they can sell them.  Very sad indeed
