On all the reading in kill/not to kill people are talking about returning fish to the depths. How do you do that piercing thingy???
Any other hints will be graciously accepted also

Hey Finga!
Have a look at the post "releasing fish question" in general chat (about halfway down the page) There is a bit on there about it. If you need more info, ask away.

I haven't read the other post so not sure if this is what you mean by peircing thing. But here it is. I use a ball pump needle that's been sanded to a point.
Cheers, Jay

Wow that is so interesting.
Im going to the library tomorrow to get a book out on fish anatomy and physiology.
Such important stuff to know if you want your returned deep water fish to live another day.
