I caught a mackerel the other day and upon release I noticed it had a bad tooth, should I have removed it before I released it so as it wouldn't have been in pain.

As mackeral are cold water fish, you should wrap them in a small surival blanket before returning them so they can increase their body temperature.

I usually find that a small toothbrush is beneficial in my tackle box for situations such as the one you have experienced.

I also tell my mackeral a brief bedtime story helps to assist their return to the briny.

I think this is all very irresponsible, you need to be properly qualified to practise dentistry, not just anyone can do it.:nono: It could be life threatening to the fish and as for fillings; what type? did anyone even consider the fish and think of asking "would you like a crown"? for example and what about hygene?, really guys come on, a wee bit of common sense please.
