Is Barotrauma Keeping You Up? Try Getting Down with Recompression

This entertaining video shows how you can release bloated rockfish to give them a chance at survival. Rockfish are long-lived fish (many live to 100 years or more!) found in the Northeast Pacific ocean. Seven species are considered overfished and several states require these species to be discarded if captured. However throwing these fish overboard often leads to their demise because of pressure-related injuries called barotrauma. Find out why a rockfish gets barotrauma and how to use a variety of recompression devices to help rockfish return to their depth of capture. Have a heart, do your part, and send them back down where you caught 'em!
