Abstract This review investigates how recreational fishing affects the physiology, behaviour, and welfare of fish. Sentience and the capacity of fish to experience pain, suffering and fear are discussed, and practical recommendations for improving the treatment of fish during recreational fishing are provided. Handling procedures used in recreational fishing should match the environment where the fish is caught and the size and strength of the fish. Minimising the number of hooks on lures and… 
Impact of UK sport fishing on fish welfare and conservation
Sport fishing or angling is the capture of fish for recreation or competition, i.e., for entertainment. Contrary to the claims of Key (2016), there is good evidence that fish feel pain and have the
The Welfare of Fish
TLDR
This chapter tells the story about the rise of animal welfare as a topic of concern, and especially fish welfare science, including the controversy concerning pain and consciousness in fish.
The physiological consequences of catch‐and‐release angling: perspectives on experimental design, interpretation, extrapolation and relevance to stakeholders
TLDR
The argument is presented that even if it is difficult to demonstrate strong links to mortality or other fitness measures, let alone population-level impacts of catch-and-release, there remains merit in using physiological tools as objective indicators of fish welfare, which is an increasing concern in recreational fisheries.
The understudied and underappreciated role of predation in the mortality of fish released from fishing gears
TLDR
Pre-release predation is an understudied and underappreciated contributor to the mortality of animals released from fishing gears and should be addressed or considered post-release.
Integrating biological and social information to inform responsible ractices for recreational shark fishing
It is generally accepted that commercial fishing is capable of adversely impacting many of the world’s fish stocks. However, with widespread participation and advances in technology available to
Fish Welfare in Recreational Fishing
Recreational fishing is a popular activity around the globe, and fish welfare issues related to the activity have received increasing attention in some countries, particularly in central and northern
onsequences of fishing lure retention on the behaviour and physiology of ree-swimming smallmouth bass during the reproductive period eil
When break-offs occur during recreational angling, lures may be retained by the fish. To date, there have been few studies on the consequences of lure retention on sportfish. This study evaluated how
Contrasting pragmatic and suffering-centred approaches to fish welfare in recreational angling.
TLDR
The pragmatic approach to fish welfare is preferred because it relies on objectively measurable variables of impaired fish welfare and does not question recreational fishing on moral grounds, contrary to a suffering-centred approach.
Consequences of catch-and-release angling on the physiological status, injury, and immediate mortality of great barracuda (Sphyraena barracuda) in The Bahamas
TLDR
Although great barracuda appear to be fairly resilient to physiological stress and injury associated with catch-and-release angling and immediate mortality was insignificant, they typically reside in habitats where post-release predation is possible, so efforts should be made to promote careful handling to ensure high rates of survival.

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
Effect of Hook Type on Mortality, Trauma, and Capture Efficiency of Wild, Stream‐Resident Trout Caught by Active Baitfishing
TLDR
Active baitfishing resulted in levels of postrelease mortality that were substantially lower than those commonly reported in baitf fishing mortality studies.
Hooking mortality: A review for recreational fisheries
Abstract Length‐limit regulations and promotion of catch‐and‐release fishing have become increasingly important management approaches for recreational fisheries. We review‐studies on
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.
Evaluating Recent Innovations in Bait Fishing Tackle and Technique for Catch and Release of Rainbow Trout
TLDR
This study tested the hypothesis that Shelton hooks are as effective for hook and release as artificial flies, and caught hatchery rainbow trout from aquaculture pens using circle hooks, the new Shelton self-releasing hooks, standard J and treble hooks, and artificial flies (all barbless).
The Effect of Scented Lures on the Hooking Injury and Mortality of Smallmouth Bass Caught by Novice and Experienced Anglers
TLDR
This study investigated the hooking injury and short-term mortality of 238 adult smallmouth bass Micropterus dolomieu captured on Lake Erie by both experienced and novice anglers on actively fished jigs similarly threaded with minnows, nonscented plastic grubs, or grubs scented with chemical attractants.
Effects of Retention Gear on the Injury and Short-Term Mortality of Adult Smallmouth Bass
TLDR
Increased injury and mortality coincided with higher water temperatures, particularly when water temperatures reached 21.8°C, and most retained fish experienced some form of injury or mortality.
Physiological response of largemouth bass to angling stress
TLDR
Fatigue in Lake Powell fish was directly proportional to hooking time and water temperature, but recovery from the hyperlacticemia was relatively rapid (about 24 h), and fish held for recovery in live cages suffered further hyperglycemia, presumably because of the stress of confinement.
The Influence of Terminal Tackle on Injury, Handling Time, and Cardiac Disturbance of Rock Bass
TLDR
The effects of catch-and-release angling on rock bass Ambloplites rupestris a small but common centrarchid species in North America was studied to assess sublethal effects.
