A barbless hook is a type of fishing hook that lacks the small, backward-facing projection (barb) near the point of the hook that is common on traditional fishing hooks. Barbless hooks are designed to make it easier to remove the hook from a fish's mouth or from the angler's skin, as they do not have the barb that can cause extra damage or resistance during the removal process. Barbless hooks are often used in catch-and-release fishing practices because they can reduce injury and stress to the fish, increasing its chances of survival after being released. Additionally, some fishing regulations require or recommend the use of barbless hooks in certain areas or for specific species to promote conservation efforts and minimize harm to fish populations.
