Fishing with Whales

Posted on August 9, 2016 at 2:24 PM
Recently while on a Family Fun Fishing charter near the Lenard Island Lighthouse a Humpback Whale swam quite close to the boat and rolled over on its side.  That day we caught a bunch of Copper Rock Fish at a depth of about 15 m. , which we released. 

As an experienced ex-commercial fisherman who caught and supplied live Rock Fish for the (high-end) Asian restaurant market I know these fish will survive.  Fisheries studies show that 90% of these fish die, however, that study was done at 90 m. (300 ft) with commercial gear, however, almost all of the fishing we do on our fishing charters are at 12 to 20 m (40 to 65 ft).  Fishing at these much shallower depths and bringing the fish up much slower is considerably less damaging to the fish and the vast majority do survive.  As a `Live Cod Fisherman`, no buyer would have paid me 10x the price of a dead fish if they didn`t make to the restaurants alive.  I believe our `Catch & Policy` is a great way of educating up and coming fishers to ensure healthy sustainable fish populations.

Man has been fishing since time immemorial. I eat fish and I am all for commercial fishing, the industry that lets us buy fresh fish and seafood at our local grocery. However, we must practice responsible fishing, one that always has the ocean, the sea creatures and the environment in general in mind. People overfish because it is their livelihood, but we have to give time for the fishes to breed, lay their eggs and grow their young to an acceptable size. Many fish species have been getting scarcer and scarcer because they have been fished to death. And many sea creatures must be protected and given a safe sanctuary like the majestic whales and even the fearsome Great White Shark.
