Hi Juan,

My experience with circle hooks is that they are a lot harder to get "hooked". I work with sharks and we tried using circle hooks to begin with for catching our fish to tag. As it turned out we lost a high number of fish as they didn't get hooked. We eventually switched to large "J" hooks with the harb filed down and that worked much better. However, you have a much greater chance of hooking the animal in the stomach which is less desirable if you intend to keep your animal alive. I am afraid I cannot give you any references to back this up.

I hope this is of some help,

Hi everyone, im looking for some literature on implementation of circle hooks and estimates on mitigation of bycatch, as it seems they might not be such a good alternative or even being worst at the end.

Thanks in advance.
