Bonefish (Albula spp.) are a popular target for recreational anglers practicing primarily catch-and-release (C&R). The effects of C&R on bonefish have been previously examined in subtropical regions of The Bahamas. However, it is unclear how these findings relate to larger bonefish, as well as those caught in warmer, tropical environments. Here we examined the effects of C&R on physiological stress and reflex impairment in bonefish in tropical Culebra, Puerto Rico. Bonefish (Albula vulpes; 56.6… CONTINUE READING
