Safe Catch and Release Best Practices
Thursday, May 23
7:00pm Zoom
With Andy Danylchuk, Science Advisor for Keep Fish Wet and Professor of Fish Conservation at UMass Amherst

Join us for this Safe Catch and Release Best Practices Zoom with Andy Danylchuk, Professor of Fish Conservation at UMass Amherst. Learn about the best way to handle stripers to ensure their survival before our South Shore Striper Tournament starting on June 7 at 5:00pm.

Catch and release is a popular fishing technique aimed at keeping fish populations sustainable. But what happens to the fish after it has been released? Dr. Danylchuk is an avid fisherman and scientist who is on a personal crusade to ensure that fish are around for future generations to enjoy. Andy will provide an informal, science-based talk that covers questions like:

  • How do you minimize the impact of handling a fish?
  • What are the physiological indicators that a fish is ready to be released?
  • How can everyone make an impact on future generations of fish?

Understanding Andy’s work and how fish respond to being caught will make you a better angler!
