Re: NFC: DP returning fish to the wild

The main reason IMHO is you risk screwing  up the genetics of a site.
Very few folks ever return a fish to its Point of origin. Maybe your fish
are no prob , but then maybey they are its not worth the risk. When you
combine lil things like disease and the sloppy ness that occurs when
people see other folks returning fish to the water its a mess. What
people end up  doing is Useing their local pond for all their excess
stock native or not....So even though the risk is small I consider it a
bad habit to get into so I just  say no !1
