NOAA to hold meeting in Ocean Pines to discuss best handling practices
Wednesday, July 31, 2013

Attention Anglers: NOAA Fisheries Port Meeting, August 7, 6:30 pm to 8:30 pm

At the Ocean Pines Library, 11107 Cathell Road, Ocean Pines, MD 21811
Phone: (410) 208-4014

On August 7th, from 6:30 PM to 8:30 PM at the Ocean Pines Library, NOAA will hold a Port Meeting will help anglers personally improve our marine fisheries by discussing best handling practices when releasing fish and learning about how anglers on other coasts are improving survival of angler released fish.

NOAA Fisheries Service and the Maryland Department of Natural Resources are hosting the meeting.

Anglers will learn about:

* the latest techniques, such as recompression devices, that may improve the survival of the deep water fish you release;

*ways to reduce barotrauma effects (an increase in internal gas pressure that prevents fish from descending after being raised to the surface);

*release methods and devices being use on the west, south Atlantic, and Gulf of Mexico coasts; and

*the FishSmart and Best Practices programs that promote careful release and fish survival practices.

Anglers will be able to provide their ideas on how to best handle the fish you release to fisheries managers and scientists.
