Subject: Releasing Fish Correctly While In Los Suenos
(Posted on Jan 10, 2014 at 09:52AM by Lee Byard)

catch and release fishing los suenos costa ricaLos Suenos embraces a catch and release philosophy. Endangered creatures - such as the Blue Marlin, the Sailfish or the Striped Marlin - are always returned to the ocean, helping to stabilize migration and reinforce breeding.

An angler unfamiliar with this kind of sport fishing, however, may make a critical mistake when trying to release a fish back into the wild: he may simply toss it back without verifying whether it's properly moving.

While fishing in Los Suenos be certain to monitor every fish’s condition. When one is set into the water, watch the way it responds to the currents. See if it instantly begins to swim or instead remains dormant. If it appears lethargic or slow keep it on the line and gently rock it back and forth. This will wake its respiration system and encourage normal bodily functions.

Refusing to do this will cause great harm and potentially result in a fish's death. It will be too stunned to swim and will instead just sink to the ocean floor. This defeats the purpose of catch and release fishing and must be avoided.
