Here (below) a local striped marlin is being revived after being caught.  The leader man has removed the hooks, and is holding the fish under the water as the boat slowly moves forward.  Forcing water over his gills until the fish has good color and wants to swim on his own.  Then when released has full recovery. Note this marlin has bright purple returning to his side stripes and dorsal fin.

After a release then fly these flags . . . source
