Re: Releasing Sevengillers back into the surf.


Did not take a camera with me.

I was a bit concerned about picking them up because they were quite ‘soft and squishy’ and I wanted to avoid any stress to their cartilage and internal organs. But I guess being able to carry them 4-5m further out would result in a much faster release and less time suffocating.

One of them, I think the 40lber swam 30-40m parallel to the beach in about a foot of water before getting through the breaker and into deeper water.
