wHAT IS KEEPEMWET® FISHING?

Keepemwet is about releasing fish in the best condition possible. It’s a motto for minimizing air exposure, eliminating contact with dry surfaces, and reducing handling. It’s a movement to empower anglers to take small, simple steps to responsibly enjoy and share fishing experiences. Our goal is to reduce angling impact on fisheries by uniting conscientious companies, organizations, and anglers to promote science based practices for handling fish that are caught then released. 

Keepemwet is the evolution of releasing fish. Our fish! Your Fish!

what does keepemwet Mean?

After fish have been caught, they are vulnerable due to the stress they have endured. By keeping fish as wet as possible, anglers can dramatically curb their impact on fish and can release them as healthy as possible. This can be achieved by:

keeping fish in the water as much as possible

HOLDING FISH IN OR SLIGHTLY ABOVE THE WATER WITH WET HANDS 

Handling fish as little and as carefully as possible
