Angling Ban due to Cruelty
« on: Fri 20 Jul 08:38 2018 »
There is a lot unfolding in Europe regarding animal welfare and catch and release fishing. Not many of us though had our eyes on India where one state has now banned angling due to animal cruelty.

    Im surprised that India was the first to introduce this, but not surprised that its happened. Its only a matter of time before it happens in here too.

    Yes. It caught me off guard. Most of the movement in angling restrictions and animal cruelty is in Europe.

    Greater focus on animal cruelty and sportfishing is already occurring in Australia. This will continue to grow.

    As the whaling starts in japan again..... :o
    What about the mega trawlers? Bet they still power on.

    You'll see a lot of very cranky people in Aus if they try and take our fishing off us.

    So if you catch and release it's cruelty as you're "torturing" the fish per se.
    But if you catch and kill it without stressing it...it shouldn't be ?
