“Fishing, Gone?” How To Protect Our Fisheries For Generations To Come
By: Joe Simonds on May 14, 2019
Have you ever considered whether fishing is a privilege or a right?
Do you have a right to fish the waters in your backyard, or is it a privilege?
If you consider that people in some other countries need to work every day to feed their families and don’t have time to take days off…
Or if you consider some countries are at war where it isn’t safe to go outside and fish…
Then you might believe fishing is a privilege.
In this podcast with author and University of Florida professor (among many other things) Sid Dobrin, we talk about the political climate of fishing, changing the fishing culture, and how us as anglers can come together to save the ocean and our fisheries.
One example of changing the fishing culture is the concept of catch and release fishing.
Catch and release used to be an unheard of concept, but now it’s popular, and in some circles, it’s frowned upon if you don’t practice it!
To see how we can make fishing better for generations to come, check out the podcast episode with Sid Dobrin below.
