Subject: The Importance Of Using Venting Tools While Fishing In Los Suenos

fish venting los suenos costa ricaOne sad truth defines bottom-dwelling fish: air is the enemy. A sudden rush of oxygen can corrupt an internal system, with pressure changes causing organs to swell and distend. The creature will be unable to properly function and will die.

This is unacceptable - especially in Los Suenos, where catch and release fishing dominates. The Central Pacific tries to promote sustainability, and having local breeds (such as Marlins or Sailfish) perish due to bloat is counterintuitive.

This is why venting becomes so important.

Venting is the process of removing excess oxygen from a fish, releasing the dangerous gases that materialize in the body once it’s taken from the water. It utilizes a specialized tool, which deflates air pockets with needle-point precision.

Those sport fishing in Los Suenos must vent their catches. This is the only way to ensure the safety of deep-sea creatures. Purchase a venting needle from one of Los Suenos’ many tackle stores, or contact local charter boats to see if they have one on board.

Continue the tradition of successful catch and release fishing in Los Suenos. Rely on venting for every season.
