Ethics in Angling (German)

Ladies and Gentlemen, Angling Colleagues,
In contrast to commercial fishermen, we anglers view catching fish as recreation in natural surroudings. This leads to strong discussions relative to a newly defined relationship between people and animals.
In addition to the proper treatment of a caught fish, the question arises whether or not it is ethically defensible to pursue, hook, catch, and kill animals as part of a recreational activity. An additional moral question is the role of “Homo industrialis” in nature.
On the basis of the definition of angler and fisher as well as the concept of situational ethics, ethical responsibility, and ethical attitude, I will highlight in my presentation our passion as an ethically defensible activity and attempt a quasi-moral clarification.

River. People. Future. - Beginnings for Sustainable Management of Flowing Waters (Film) (German)

People and their activities involving water have led, in many areas, to a drastic decrease in fish populations and reduced water quality. The film from Kristof Reuther and Lukas Kirchgäßner emphasizes the contrast between natural and straightened streams and proposes sustainable solutions for fishing societies.
