Great survey, helped me rationalize a lot of things. What do you do if your fish is not releasable (revivable) and you have only a C&R license? It has been known to happen. So what do you do?

Personally, it hasn't happened to me, but it has with two fishing partners over the years. Such a shame, but in keeping with the regulations, one of the fish was released, unfortunately, still bleeding. The other certainly didn't seem like it would make it, but we made a small rock pool at the edge of the river and put the fish in it. Then informed ZEC where it was.

In Kamchatka in 1996 I tried to revive a beautiful 18 lb hen steelhead for a long, long time. Was unsuccessful. I was there as part of the Kamchatka Steelhead Project (KSP). Steelhead are in the Russian Redbook (endangered species) and are illegal to even fish for. The KSP, though, was a scientific research program where it was allowed. All our fish were to be released after measurements, scale/tissue samples/tagging, etc. were performed. The program allowed only 12 (I think) fish to actually be killed to allow collection of additional organ/bone samples. It was a real shame, a gorgeous fish, but she was delicious. The only steelhead I've ever killed.

Done and voted for C&R with a proviso that either a guide for a C&R party or the individual holder of a C&R licence be entrusted with 1 "bleeder" tag .I also mentioned that I would be willing to pay MORE for said licence

That is a good idea, truth be told, I have seen a fish have a heart attack, it jumped twice, made a brief run, and bacame completely limp on the end of the line, the guide propped up between a couple of rocks and left it there by law. I respected the guides decision. I did not like to see the grilse left for the predators. Unfortunately, one tag would get abused. How about a one tag , grilse only. Worldwide. Pay the higher fee, put the rest into research and enforcement.

You're absolutely right in saying a "bleeder"/1tag would be abused .Boiling and re-using NF and NB Grilse tags is a small infrequant cottage industry, but it happens.1 Grilse tag worldwide would be THE answer and I believe that was one of my added comments .However, that and an increase in the cost of a licence, would go over like a fart in a spacesuit with some locals
