Many people who like fishing will prepare a set of fishing tools, such as fishing rod, bait and so on. But they often ignore the fish weighing scale as a tool. The fish weighing scale is small in size, but it plays a great role. When fishing alone, the fish weighing scale can weigh heavy fish for the first time to avoid excessive fishing. When holding a fishing competition, the ranking can be determined according to the weight of the fish measured by the fish weighing scale. In addition, the fish weighing scale can also be used to weigh luggage, vegetables and fruits, is a more comprehensive weighing tool.
Fish weighing scales are used to determine the weight of fish and include stainless steel weighing pans for commercial selling or hooks that can be attached to a single fish's gill plate for more secure weighing in competition environments. They typically offer water-resistant casing and allow for easy cleaning after use. Most waterproof washdown scales or hanging scales are suitable for weighing fish; the type depends on the size and quantity of fish you plan to weigh.
Fish weighing scales including washdown scales and checkweighing scales for selling fish by weight, are commonly used by fishmongers and commercial fishermen who supply retail market chains and other vendors. Competetive anglers rely on hanging scale varieties to weigh the fish they hook, while recreational fishermen use scales to measure what they catch, ensuring the fish don’t exceed size restrictions. Conservationists and hobbyists may also require scales for weighing chemicals used to treat fish ponds and aquariums; for example, in ponds of koi carp accuracy is very important to prevent overdosing and fluctuations to water nutrient and PH levels.
Finding a suitable fish weighing scale can prove difficult for commercial fisheries to recreational fishers alike. We have outlined some things to consider when buying a fish weighing scale:
If the scale is used for commercial selling by weight then you will need to ensure the scale is trade approved, has a high weighing capacity and large pan size to weigh large amounts of fish all at once. Alternatively, if you fish recreationally you will likely need a more practical scale that can be used on a lake or riverside with ease, in this case, a hanging scale may be a better choice.
·How Often Will You Use The Scale?
If you intend to use the scale frequently then it best to invest in a more expensive fish weighing scale that can withstand rigorous use and comes with additional features to streamline the weighing process. If you only plan to use your scale occasionally, a cheaper, multi-purpose scale may be more useful.
·How Much Are You Willing to Spend?
It is important to consider how much money you are willing to spend on a scale and whether you are in a position to buy the scale you need. We recommend waiting to buying a scale if it cannot fully meet your requirements as it is likely that at some point you may need to buy a replacement.
