Conservation

healthy, sustainable fisheries

We encourage a conservation ethic for all anglers. Consider the value of catch and release fishing. Don't harvest a species if you are not going to eat it. We encourage anglers to release all trophy fish that will not be consumed. It is possible to order a replica mount based only on the length and girth measurements of your trophy catch, so release it. Large individual fish contribute disproportionately to healthy fish populations.

We strongly encourage anglers to release all shark species in a manner that will ensure maximum probability of survival.

We strongly encourage anglers to release all billfish in a manner that will ensure maximum probability of survival.

The Bahamas component of the Fish Rules app was created in collaboration with Bahamas Reef Environmental Education Foundation (BREEF), with funding from The Nature Conservancy and The Summit Foundation.
