In this episode, I talk with my friend Kirk Lombard all about gathering the fruits of the seashore, from clams and such to little fish, monkeyface eels and more. Kirk's book "The Sea Forager" is a fantastic guide to nearshore gathering and fishing, and we totally geek out on odd tidepool edibles.

I've always had a thing about catch and release; I don't like participating in fisheries where there is no take allowed. (Obviously, I release lots of fish that are undersized or incidental catch though). But my opinion, even though it's based on research, isn't nearly as important to listen to as are the research findings of Stephanie Shaw of the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources. (And no, we're not related.)

Catch and release is Stephanie's specialty, and together we bust some myths and talk about best practices for catch and release, primarily in freshwater fishing, but relevant to saltwater, too.
