Sport fishing is a technique of recreational fishing that varies, according to the type of fish and body of water. Sport fishing is often practiced as angling, in which a fishing rod with a baited hook is used to catch fish, but other techniques can be used. Once an angler catches a fish, they often kill it and have it weighed and preserved; however, "catch and release, a system in which the fish is released after being reeled in (and sometimes weighed), is increasingly popular. According to the City of Toronto, there are 15 different types of fish that can be caught within the city limits.
