Our mission: we promote the sustainable management of aquatic ecosystems through fishing hook reforms

Our Aims

  1. Protect and enhance aquatic ecosystems where wild fish populations and wider flora and fauna can thrive.
  2. Promote responsible use of fishing hooks to maximise successful catch and release, including those fishing to eat (e.g. live release of non-target and juvenile fish.)

Our Activities

Through collaborative partnerships promote: 

  1. Recreational angling: responsible selection and use of fishing hooks to aid successful catch and release.
  2. Commercial fisheries: use of certified non-offset circle hooks in all long-line and pole-and-line fisheries, to maximise successful live-release of by-catch. Return to Home page
