Our mission: To protect and enhance the quality of life for domestic, farm and wild animals in B.C.

Q - Is it considered cruelty to animals to allow a fish to suffocate slowly rather than killing it instantly?

The BC SPCA believes recreational fishing should only be carried out by the employment of the best possible angling techniques and handling procedures that will minimize stress, together with the use of gear that will cause the least amount of injury and pain.
