Fishing relieves stress and promotes healthy living

Being outside in nature is showed to diminish depression, reduce inflammation, and ameliorate stressful situations. The same maxim can be applied to fishing too.

When you’re fishing outside, you absorb vitamin D—which boosts your immune system and better fends off disease.

Whether you’re fishing on public lands or charting a boat, fishing isn’t simply a sedentary activity. It forces one to be active en route to their fishing destination or alert when they hook in a big fish. Media portrayals of anglers as lazy bums are off-mark, at best.

And if anglers choose to consume the fish they harvest—bearing in mind catch limits, seasons, and edible fish species—there are plenty of added health benefits to consuming it. Various fish species are filled with Omega-3 fatty acids, vitamin D, vitamin B2 (riboflavin), calcium, phosphorus, iron, zinc, iodine, magnesium, and potassium.

In fact, the American Heart Association recommends we eat fish— especially “fatty fish”— at least twice a week.
