Ironically, even anglers who keep a fish or two for the plate participate in catch-and-release. Just think about it. What happens when a fish is caught out of season or isn’t a legal size — too small, or not within the slot limit? The angler has to put it back, and hence practice catch-and-release. In Florida, for example, it’s been estimated that approximately half of all fish caught by recreational anglers are released — some as general practice, and many because of size or bag limits. And with snook, one of the most popular game fish in the state, it is estimated that more than 95 percent of caught fish are released.
