Title and almost the entire article is intentionally misleading, to put it nicely. 

 

“the actual impact on the survival of hook-injured fish was not followed.”

 

typical BS.

Yes catch and release harms and kills fish but not all of them, at least its not an article about how they feel pain.

Anything you read in the popular press about a specialized topic was written by a non-specialist who will bring his lack of understanding to what he writes.  And, no, I'm not talking about "fake news."

Have no doubt that many fish get seriously injured.  They certainly have a chance at surviving if you release them versus no chance if you keep them.

Do serious harm to a fish's mouth, and the fish will have problems.  Handle it properly, and it will survive very well.

 

We always knew that there is some level of release mortality.  But we have a number of studies that show that most striped bass, at least, survive.
