Argyrosomus japonicus is arguably South Africa’s most important estuarine recreational and small-scale fishery species. Although juvenile A. japonicus predominate in estuarine environments, where catch-and-release angling is common, limited C&R studies have taken place. The aim of this study was to use angler-behaviour to robustly examine the physi...
Article
Fisheries managers are increasingly promoting catch-and-release (C&R) to manage recreationally angled fish stocks. Despite this, there is a scarcity of information on the effects of C&R on estuarine-dependent species. Cape stumpnose Rhabdosargus holubi dominates the recreational fisheries catch and provides an important source of food for subsisten...

... As with blood glucose, blood lactate concentrations were positively correlated with air exposure time. However, this association is common and has been observed in a number of other C&R studies (Arkert et al., 2018;Bower et al., 2016a;Suski et al., 2007). Air exposure influences lactate levels as oxygen acts as the terminal electron receptor in adenosine triphosphate (ATP) production (Wang and Richards, 2011). ...
