THE STORY:

EVENT DATE: SEP 11, 2015

BENEFITING: International Game Fish Association- Research and Conservation

EVENT: The Great Marlin Race 2015 in coordination with the Master Angler Billfish Tournament, International Billfish Association and Stanford University

EVENT DATE: September 11-12, 2015

WHAT IS THE GREAT MARLIN RACE? The IGFA Great Marlin Race (IGMR) is a partnership between the International Game Fish Association (IGFA) and Stanford University that pairs recreational anglers with cutting-edge science to learn more about the basic biology of marlin and how they utilize the open ocean habitat. 

This effort is aimed to improve our understanding of distribution, population structure and biology of marlin while engaging anglers and the general public in the research process. By learning how these animals use the pelagic ecosystem, we are providing valuable information to the resource managers and policy makers responsible for ensuring their long‐term conservation.

The Dana Angling Club is excited to, once again, participate in the Great Marlin Race of 2015. As a non-profit organization, with your help,we are able to purchase and deploy pop‐up satellite archival tags (PSAT) at $4,500 each.  These tage are necessary to track and research the behavioral and migratory patterns of Striped Marlin. in 2014, the Dana Angling Club successfully tagged a striped marlin and this marlin was the first of the race to pop up.  

More information on The Great Marlin Race and how you can help: On September 11-12, 2015, during the 34th annual Master Angler Billfish Tournament (MABT), the Dana Angling Club, with its participating boat teams, will compete to catch and release marlin. If enough funds are raised, we will have the first-time ability to participate in the Great Marlin Race by deploying satellite tags to learn more about this beautiful species of fish and compete in the Great Marlin Race.

Together, our teams can make a difference and better understand how these beautiful animals behave and migrate which will ultimately help aid in the conservation efforts of these and other migratory fish.
