Death of a magnificent Specimen
by Julius Klokow
11 October 2012
MORE ARTICLES

SACS condemns the actions by this angler in the strongest way possible in killing the 18.36kg (40lb) Specimen displayed although the following scenarios could be possible why this angler did not release the fish to possibly fight another day.

1. The angler was not properly educated to know that this fish took years to grow to its magnificence but he still decided to kill it by removing it from the river and take it home.

2. The angler wanted to display his “magnificent” catch and opted for the option to take it home with full disregard of the fish’s magnificence rather than to show the picture taken at the river.

3. The angler wanted to provide food on the plate of his family at home and opted to take the biggest.

The SA Carp Society educates anglers through its website, the media and partners like the Donaldson Specimen Benefit to release all healthy carp above 10kg. SACS needs you to become part of us to get the word out more quickly to curb the killing of such magnificent Specimen Carp as well as to stop the general practice by many anglers to mistreat fish.

Please join the Society because it is the right thing to do!
