    Dinh, I just finished reading that article before I saw your thread. That's a crying shame to kill that fish.

    In the limited number of responses, it's interesting to see the different "takes" on the article. I hadn't seen it yet , so thanks Dinh...

    As an avid fisherman, who enjoys eating some of his catch, I often slip the biggest ones back. Two reasons....older bigger fish have an excellent chance over the years to accumulate heavy metals and other negative things you do not want to consume into your body, and bigger more mature subjects reproduce in better numbers, thus insuring the availability of the species.

    There was also recently an excellent paper done recently (I'll try and find the journal and article again) on the fact that constantly taking the largest fish from a population and leaving smaller ones to reproduce reduces the average size of the offspring over a number of generations. Leaving the largest fish keeps the average size up.
