Over the next few weeks we will be highlighting the findings from peer-reviewed scientific publications made possible by data collected by the IGFA Great Marlin Race. This publication comes from Eduardo Wanick’s Master’s degree thesis working with Dr. David Kerstetter at Nova Southeastern University. Eduardo examined the movements of blue marlin in the North and South Atlantic to determine the extent of interactions between the two Atlantic regions. His research also examined blue marlin temperature preferences between Atlantic and Pacific tagged fish to determine habitat preference. For more information, check out Eduardo’s results at ➡️ IGMR, presented by Costa Sunglasses, is a research collaboration between IGFA and Stanford University and is sponsored by EdgeWater Boats, and Release Boatworks. ...
