The easiest and safest way to iki jime your catch!
The IkiPik features a super-sharp stainless-steel spike with protective cover mounted in a highly visible robust BPA plastic grip handle, with built-in bottle opener and lanyard attachment!
The IkiPik is a highly visible, safe and easy to use iki jime device that penetrates easily through the ﬁsh to ensure a quick end to your catch and longer lasting ﬁllets for you and your family.
The name ‘IkiPik’ is derived from the term ‘iki jime’, a Japanese term for the method of paralysing a fish while maintaining the quality of its flesh.
Simply cutting the neck of a fish may seem to do the job, but by using the IkiPik to euthanise your catch you will be instantly killing all nerve endings, thus stopping the release of lactic acid, which breaks down the ﬂesh leaving it sour, soggy and less tasteful.
Another important reason to use the IkiPik is to treat your catch humanely.
When placed in a bucket or catch tank, even with the neck cut, the ﬁsh dies a very slow agonising death.
As ﬁshos, we all try to do the right thing, so treating our catch with respect should be a priority for us.
The iki jime method is endorsed by Australia’s National Code of Practice for Recreational and Sport Fishing and more information can be found at ikijime.com
