Saw this on M1 and thought some people would like to follow it.

Don't know how many people are following this but so far they have around 25 fish tagged and all of them are still alive and kicking after being caught!! Pretty good results so far for defending catch and release and maybe delayed mortality rates are much lower than we thought.

They are also doing this study in canada right? Much cooler temps in canadian waters can also have a huge effect on this i bet as well. But still that is sweet to know, ive followed this a bit but havent looked at it recently
