What’s up with catch and release?

Playing with your food disrespects First Nations culture in northwestern BC

Dear Sir:

Call me ignorant or slow on the uptake but I fail to understand why anyone in today’s world would want to catch and release fish.

From a First Nations cultural, ethical and spiritual point of view, it shows disrespect to an animal, merely to play with it and let it go. When the elders said, “Don’t play with your food”, they meant it.

We are in First Nations fishing territory and we need to honour that.
