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.

    Just one more cast

    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 ?

    Now you will have the extreme greenies and conservationists and other fringe groups trying to get the ball rolling over so everyone can then become vegans

    It wont grow if the politicians grow some agates and stand up to the selfish loony left. We will eventually have to have our own Donald Trump moment.

    Perhaps some of these fishing programs on television should look at how they handle fish prior to releasing.  How many times have you seen the host holding a fish and giving a big lecture on, 'Oh, what a beautiful specimen, look at this, look at that'.  Meanwhile the fish is still out of the water gasping for air.  I find it hard to watch certain fishing shows because I consider that to be cruel.

    mate these groups dont care how you handle them.
    They just want fishing banned as they do hunting ,trapping ,4wd and horse and dog racing.
    Even farming of animals for humans to eat.

    Need to make sure your vote is heard if involved in any of the above.
    Qld fisherman will have a choice at next state election With Sffp Qld now approved by AEC.

    SFFP Qld mean Shooter, Fisher and Farmers Party Queensland.

    Taken over 5 years but it is now approved.
    Consider your future and your kids future rights to fish
