Fish Welfare

Looking after your catch is very important!

Looking after your catch is very important! Wales has great fishing in part due to catch and release. Conservation is a big consideration, particularly for game fish such as salmon and sea trout that are governed by regulations requiring them to be released. Coarse fish also need to be carefully looked after and returned undamaged after capture.

This page looks at fish care – how to respect your quarry to ensure your catch goes back well, so the next angler can also enjoy great fishing in Wales.
