Ethics is defined by Ethics (also known as moral philosophy) is a branch of philosophy which seeks to address questions about morality, such as what the fundamental semantic, ontological, and epistemic nature of ethics or morality is (meta-ethics), how moral values should be determined (normative ethics), how a moral outcome can be achieved in specific situations (applied ethics), how moral capacity or moral agency develops and what its nature is (moral psychology), and what moral values people actually abide by (descriptive ethics). Ok everybody's opinion is welcome here. This is just mine. So how do we figure out if something is ethical in fishing terms? Are certain methods of legal fish unethical? Is someone keeping a 50 pound flathead to feed themselves or their family unethical? I am confused by alot of people here, that will say another person is unethical or wrong for fishing legally. If its by the law, then dont they have the right to do it? Yes I would like to see thropy fish for our children, and i will do my part in protecting them. But it gets to me when i hear others talk bad about others because they think they are unethical for keeping a fish or fishing in a way that doesn't please others. I jug fish,I run trot lines,I run limb lines and I rod and reel fish, if that angers some of you I dont really care its my legal right to do it. More to come I have a meeting to attend. Be back in an hour or so. I want to hear yalls comments.
