Is this an okay way to handle fish

Rate this topic

We discuss the proper way to release fish and how to revive them but has anyone seen this week's issue of the Fisherman?


I'm not a biologist but the picture they show of the hatchery releasing the fish is crazy. The front page shows a guy throwing a net full of trout through the air into the water. I have seen hatchery trucks throwing trout off a bridge before as well.


Maybe it's me but doesn't this seem like it's bad for the fish? I know a fall of just 5 feet on to our heads can kill a human and yes these are fish entering water but I just can't see this being good for them.
