Galapagos Fishing Catch & Release
Galapagos Fishing Catch & Release in Galapagos Islands, the enchanted islands are much known around the World for it´s marvelous flora and fauna, due to different kinds of currents crossing by this archipelago; in fact, in the Far East Pacific, oceanic currents collide, causing massive upwelling of plankton.
It became to Galapagos islands one of the best places on Earth for fishing activities A Tournament was held in the Galapagos a year ago, 17 boats fished during 4 days, this tournament was sponsored by the Salinas Yacht Club, there were 1500 recorded bites and 507 Marlins, caught and released unharmed, this has never happened in angling history.
Galapagos Islands offer the hottest Marlin fishing on the planet Earth.
This is strictly catch and release, no take, fishery, due to sensitive environmental concerns of Galapagos; this shows dedication of “BLUE” crew to return unharmed to the ocean all billfish caught.
Only circle hooks in natural baits to insure no injury to fish, no stainless steel hooks, only steel which corrodes in short period of time in seawater, there are several fishing spot around San Cristobal Island; this is the place where our operation is concentrated.
All fishes are resuscitated prior to release by trained crew. All this adds up to concern and respect for Galapagos National Park efforts to conserve the billfish of this lost paradise and to contribute to the survival of the species.
Our crew used to be dedicated to fishing activities but thanks to this new option now they are involved in vivencial fishing only that helps to the conservation of Galapagos.
