Collection: KILL TOOLS / PREP KITS

Time is of the essence. Allowing a fish to thrash around and die slowly in air or a bucket of water is unacceptable. It causes unnecessary stress to the fish, reduces the eating quality and shortens the storage life of the flesh. If you choose to kill a legal sized fish, it should be done quickly – preferably within a minute of it being caught.

Either a firm knock on the head or spiking of the brain (called iki jime or ike jime – pronounced “iki jimi”) will kill fish immediately. These are the two preferred killing methods endorsed by Australia’s National Code of Practice for Recreational and Sport Fishing.

Some basic tools are required to kill fish humanely.

  • To knock a fish on the head, use a wooden club or ‘priest’ with sufficient weight to render the fish immediately unconscious.
  • The iki jime procedure can be done using either a sharp knife, a sharpened screwdriver, or by using specially designed iki jime tools such as the Ikigun, Iki spike, Ikipik, Donga bat.
