We watched a bit of the River Cottage Christmas special last night and I was surprised to see the people on the boat trip holding the squid they had caught and admiring the different colours it turned - I gather that when you catch a large fish you bop it on the head with a bit of wood to kill it quickly, but can't you do the same for squid etc? I'm sure they said it was more intelligent than people tend to think so does it not need the same treatment or something similar as fish? If anyone catches them (the programme said it was the season for them?) what do you do?

Dunno, I watched it when it was on earlier in the week and just ended up shouting at the TV anyway. "Why don't you mention your full-time gardener?", stuff like that.

Large ilex squid can be killed by just running a knife between its eyes to the crown of its head .but usually it is just thrown in a box same as all seafish , very rarely do sea anglers kill the fish on boats

Don't think I fancy biting a squid (Well unless it's lightly sauteed with a bit of garlci or summat)

What is the logic or reasoning behind that? Surely it can't be kind.

Sorry bernie kindness doesnt come into it ,would you have the trawlers which lift tonnes daily ( if they are lucky ) kill every fish humanly unfortunatly this govt orders them to dump hundreds of tonnes of dead usable fish overboard as it is , so im sorry to say that same attitude pervades on angling boats they pay to fish and they do not waste time knocking a fish on the noggin myself included having my own boat shooting a few lines for home consumption i dont waste time doing it iether, now if i shoot a rabbit or a pheasant ( not that i am a crap shot ) then i will dispatch it maybe thats because it may escape as a fish in a box has no place to go . regs spanky

i dispatch fish with a few kind words and extreme swiftness
regardless of any ethical issues they taste better with a kind death .

Every sea-angling boat I've been on has the fish killed immediately and gutted before reaching the harbour.

Angling maybe but fishing not a chance.

well thein i guess the education of sea anglers has got through after all. last time i went sea angling on a boat ( aberdeen 2002 50 each the day )other than mine every fish caught hit the box and was gutted on the way back to shore .. and the skipper tried to take the fish as well as he only charged for folks to catch them ( this he told us when we had upped anchor and was coming back ) not keep what they caught ,,,,37 stone approx which would have made him another 70 a box , soon changed his mind .6 marines have a persuasive look about them.... robbing barsteward
