Question Metal & Saltwater Hooks

Many hook manufacturers produce hooks using different metals. . Nickel, Bronze, “Gold” (which might be some kind of Chrome or Brass coating), Stainless Steel, and something they call “Platinum Black” (Eagle Claw).

In our quest for “conservation” I’m wondering if there exists a preferred “metal” by the Recreational Community for Saltwater.

(By conservation I mean, in the case, where you cannot retrieve the hook - the line breaks.)

In Saltwater, the theory is that you’d want the hook to rust, corrode and fall out as quickly as possible.
