Created with Kindness
Sardine and anchovy are more well known as snack fish and pizza topping. But they are also ground into fish pellets to create food for farm-raised fish. And some of these farm raised fish are not a substitute for industrial caught wild fish. They are fish for recreation, dumped into ponds, lakes and streams.
There are not enough native fish in ponds and streams to please the demand of fishermen. Decades of mismanaging natural resources have decimated native fish stocks. This includes overfishing and bad catch and release skills. So states raise fish in tanks for recreation. The state treasuries need the revenue recreational fishing generates.
But what if native fish populations were able to rebound? What if we cleaned the water they live in? What if fish populations could recover because they were not injured or killed for fun? What if you could "catch" the same fish over and over without doing it harm?
These are some of the questions we asked ourselves. And one of the answers was KindFishing. Enjoying the best fishing has to offer without the worst.
Fish more. Do no harm.
