For Researchers

The IGFA Great Marlin Race is committed to making all tag data available to scientists and fisheries managers via an open access system. Our goal in sharing this information is to improve our understanding of billfish migratory behaviors in several ocean basins simultaneously, and improve our understanding of the underlying oceanographic features that shape the connectivity of populations across the globe.  This type of information can then be used to enact better international conservation measures for marlin around the world.
