Einbezug der Sterblichkeit von Rückwürfen in der Freizeitfischerei in das europäische Fischereimanagement

Universität Rostock, 2018

Abstract: Globally, catch-and-release (C&R) is a common practice in recreational fisheries, but information on its magnitude and impacts on fish is limited in Europe. This thesis provides an overview of the magnitude of C&R in European marine recreational fisheries, and investigates lethal and sub-lethal effects of C&R on European eel and sea bass. The results show that C&R can be a suitable management measure to decrease recreational fishing mortality of fish stocks while maintaining angling opportunities, ultimately increasing our ability to manage fish stocks sustainably.
