Fishing with Whales

Recently while on a Family Fun Fishing charter near the Lenard Island Lighthouse a Humpback Whale swam quite close to the boat and rolled over on its side.  That day we caught a bunch of Copper Rock Fish at a depth of about 15 m. , which we released. 

As an experienced ex-commercial fisherman who caught and supplied live Rock Fish for the (high-end) Asian restaurant market I know these fish will survive.  Fisheries studies show that 90% of these fish die, however, that study was done at 90 m. (300 ft) with commercial gear, however, almost all of the fishing we do on our fishing charters are at 12 to 20 m (40 to 65 ft).  Fishing at these much shallower depths and bringing the fish up much slower is considerably less damaging to the fish and the vast majority do survive.  As a `Live Cod Fisherman`, no buyer would have paid me 10x the price of a dead fish if they didn`t make to the restaurants alive.  I believe our `Catch & Policy` is a great way of educating up and coming fishers to ensure healthy sustainable fish populations.

All the product keys are legitimate and official. Then just activate your Windows 10 Pro Product Key with the purchased product key. The activation process is simple and easy to operate.

This may not be a good option because whales are the friends of humans. This is why, this must be avoided so that whales can be saved.
