IGFA Great Marlin Race Billfish Tagging Event – Beach Haven White Marlin Invitational

August 13, 2024 – August 17, 2024 all-day

Beach Haven White Marlin Invitational Tournament

Beach Haven, New Jersey

August 13-17, 2024

In the 13th year of the IGFA Great Marlin Race (IGMR), the IGFA will be deploying satellite tags to study billfish migrations and diving behavior at major tournaments around the world. Teams sponsoring tags will be supplied with the necessary equipment to deploy their own satellite tag on marlin, sailfish, or spearfish species and will be provided a comprehensive report of the results from their tagged billfish. Each tag will also be entered into the competition to see which billfish travels the farthest in 2024-2025.

Information from the IGFA Great Marlin Race is used to better understand the ecology of marlin, sailfish, and spearfish; leading to improved conservation and management of billfish resources in our world’s oceans.

If you are interested in deploying satellite tags on billfish species in your area please contact IGFA Conservation Director Bruce Pohlot at [email protected].
