One-by-one fishing techniques are widely considered as the most sustainable forms of fishing, especially for environmentally vulnerable places like the Maldives. However, these techniques do require a substantial amount of live bait, which must be managed with care. In this video, we will explore best practices for bait fishing and handling to promote responsible practices amidst environmental challenges. In the video we look at wet scooping, reducing the 'slosh effect', bait well lighting, water circulation and aeration, removing dead bait, and overcrowding.
