Understanding the Complexity of Catch-and-Release in Recreational Fishing: An Integrative Synthesis of Global Knowledge from Historical, Ethical, Social, and Biological Perspectives
Most research on catch-and-release (C&R) in recreational fishing has been conducted from a disciplinary angle focusing on the biological sciences and the study of hooking mortality after release.
Biotelemetry: a mechanistic approach to ecology.
The Role of Recreational Fishing in Global Fish Crises
Abstract Exploitation of fishery resources has become a major conservation issue on a global scale. Commercial fisheries have been repeatedly blamed for the worldwide declines in fish populations.

Aquatic animal telemetry: A panoramic window into the underwater world
TLDR
A brave new world with a wider view Researchers have long attempted to follow animals as they move through their environment, but such efforts were limited to short distances and times in species large enough to carry large batteries and transmitters, while new technologies have opened up new frontiers in animal tracking remote data collection.
Evidence to Challenge the ''2% Rule'' for Biotelemetry
TLDR
Although swimming performance was not affected by implantation of transmitters weighing up to 12% of the body weight, changes in behavior were not evaluated and it is suggested further research be done so that the "2% rule" can be replaced by an index with a more scientific basis.
Are circle hooks an effective tool for conserving marine and freshwater recreational catch-and-release fisheries?
Circle hooks have rapidly become popular among recreational anglers, based largely on the assumption that their use aids in the conservation of fisheries resources by reducing gut hooking, and hence
Do we need species-specific guidelines for catch-and-release recreational angling to effectively conserve diverse fishery resources?
Catch-and-release recreational angling has become very popular as a conservation strategy and as a fisheries management tool for a diverse array of fishes. Implicit in catch-and-release angling
A review of detection range testing in aquatic passive acoustic telemetry studies
TLDR
This study presents a comprehensive review of how acoustic detection range has been considered and assessed to date, summarizes important variables to monitor when determining the detection range of a receiver array, and provides recommendations to account for detection range during experimental design, analysis and data interpretation.
