  • IGFA | Canary Islands Spain 2012 2013
    Canary Islands Spain 2012 2013 JULY 2012 July 24th marked the first tag deployment of the IGMR in a location that is not associated with a particular tournament Plans have been made by IGFA Trustee Emeritus José Luis Bestegui of Spain to deploy five tags in the next few weeks that he graciously sponsored Bestegui is off to a great start as the first fish tagged was a 500 lb blue 226 kg aboard Arin which was tagged by Fernando Elvas The selection of this location was no accident however The waters around Spain s Canary Islands are a well known blue marlin hotspot in the eastern Atlantic as are the Azores and Madeira Tagging marlin in these locations may be the key to unlock information about their behavior and the connectivity between these hotspots Tagging these fish may also give us better information on transoceanic movements in marlin Just as one fish that was tagged in Puerto Rico traveled to Africa we could conceivably see a fish tagged in the eastern Atlantic migrate to the western Atlantic off the coast of North or South America With more information available about behavior and migration routes of marlin in different areas

  • IGFA | Madeira Portugal 2012
    Madeira The island of Madeira Portugal is famous for its exceptionally large blue marlin and was a favorite fishing destination of late IGFA Trustee and record holder Stewart Campbell IGFA President Rob Kramer and Conservation Director Jason Schratwieser brought five tags to deploy at the tournament in memory of the late Stewart Campbell who passed away last year In addition to being an accomplished big game angler Campbell was an ardent conservationist who assisted in several satellite tagging projects with experts such as Barbara Block of Stanford University Tags were sponsored by IGFA Representatives Michel Marchandise Belgium and Rocky Franich United States and noted billfish angler Wayne Whippen Unfortunately the fish did not cooperate during the two day tournament as only a single fish was caught Upon hearing a fish was hooked up Schratwieser was transferred to the boat fighting the fish by a chase boat to tag the marlin After more than a 30 minute fight the leader was grabbed by the mate for an official catch Unfortunately the hooks pulled before the tag could be deployed in the fish and all on the boat watched as the big female swam leisurely away near the water s surface Five tags still remain in Madeira to be deployed under the guidance of Wayne Whippen who lives on the island part time and has extensive experience deploying satellite tags on marlin and bluefin tuna In addition IGFA Trustee Emeritus Jose Luis Beistegui has purchased five tags to be deployed further south in the Canary Islands Six fish were tagged in the western Atlantic last year at the Club Náutico de San Juan s 58th Annual International Billfish Tournament in Puerto Rico Tagging fish in Madeira and the Canary Islands will help us better understand marlin behavior on both sides of the

  • IGFA | Cabo San Lucas Mexico 2013
    in Mexico at the Bisbee Los Cabos Offshore Tournament in Cabo san Lucas The tournament had tags sponsored by teams Sporty Game Wild Hooker Wildcatter and Tiger Spirit Unfortunately two of the tags failed to report While the IGMR has an overall reporting rate of nearly 90 there are reasons why tags may not report For example predation events could damage a tag or a tag may be destroyed when a fish is caught by a commercial vessel Of the two tags that reported one unfortunately pulled free of the fish within 48 hours after it was tagged The other tag that was deployed on a blue marlin on the Sporty Game on October 23 2013 surfaced and reported on March 28 2013 and we were blown away by the results In just under six months the blue swam a linear distance of 1 544 nautical miles nm In addition the fish appeared to circle back to the Cabo San Lucas Mexico area during mid November before swimming south where it crossed the equator twice The track that was generated from tag revealed that this marlin swam an estimated 4 406 nm in just 156 days before the tag popped off north of the Galapagos Islands Like most other blue marlin that have been tagged in the IGMR this marlin spent the majority 60 of its time in upper five meters of the water column where the water temperatures were warmest However while it preferred warm surface waters it did make periodic deep dives to depths of nearly 300 meters where water temperatures were as cold as 10 15 degrees Celsius Why is any of this important One of the primary goals of the IGMR is to better understand population connectivity on a global level Most billfish anglers have wondered
