New fishing photo guidelines
The sportfishing industry increasingly frowns upon the so-called “hero shot,” which is when you drag big catches aboard the boat for a picture, and then release them. Scientific data show that pulling out big fish, such as sailfish, marlin, big tarpon and big roosterfish, can overstress the fish and damage it internally. The Tico Times encourages readers to continue writing in and posting “release shots” photos instead.
