Culling of small, injured, or diseased fish is required. The Slot limit for culling of individual species of fish is listed at the bottom of each Catch Report. It is absolutely vital that species caught, that fall within the specified cull limit range, be removed from the food chain. 3. Complete a Catch Report by the end of each visit to CSR. Take a blank catch report with you on the boat. Log results as you catch individual fish. Return the completed Catch Reports to the sign-in shed.

Use the Brecknell Electro Samson Scale with Clip. 6. A Rubberized Net. Please bring a rubberized dipping net to handle all fish caught. The rubber coating mitigates the loss of the slime coat during the extraction / de-hooking / release of each fish. The cheap braided nets are very bad on the fish and often result in bacterial infections and death from loss of their slime coats. 7. Hand-held fish grabber. A hand-held fish grabber will keep your hands away from the fish s mouth and/or hook and will protect the fish s slime coat by reducing the amount of contact that your hands have on the fish s body.
