Sustainable Fishing

If you are reading this page, there is a good chance you are a fan of fishing. Perhaps, you are concerned about the impact that these types of fishing competitions can have on the environment, and fishing populations. You can rest assured the team at The Cod Comp are strongly dedicated to the education and analysis of the impact of competitons such as ours, and like to promote best practice in order to minimise any environmental impact on both the land, water and fish populations.
We proudly promote catch and release as an environmentally responsible option, in an effort to promote fishing while maintaining fish populations.
There are a few things you can consider when fishing both as a hobby, sport or recreationally in order to minimise your impact:

Tackle, Lures & Hooks

We encorage the use of barbless, single and circle hooks, in order to reduce damage of hook removal. Artificial lures can also help reduce the deep hooking of fish.

Landing Nets & Line

Try to use soft, knotless landing nets in order to ensure the least possible damage to your fish. Use appropriate line classes for the fish you are catching to avoid breakage.

Catch & Release / Leave no Trace

We are strong advocates of catch and release, take care of your catch and send them back to live another day. As always, whatever you take out with you, bring home and dispose of correctly.

We encourage all our entrants to follow these guidelines, as well as ensuring they are following all local laws relating to fishing in their given area. Good luck, and happy fishing!
