<br /> <br /> What is the<br /> IGFA Great Marlin Race?<br /> The IGFA Great Marlin Race (IGMR), pre-<br /> sented by Costa Sunglasses®, is the<br /> world's largest billfish satellite tagging<br /> program. This program is a partner-<br /> ship between The International<br /> Game Fish Association (IGFA) and<br /> Stanford University that pairs recre-<br /> ational anglers with cutting-edge sci-<br /> ence to learn more about the basic<br /> biology of billfish and how they utilize<br /> the open ocean habitat. By deploying<br /> pop up satellite archival tags (PSATs) on billfish<br /> at recreational angling tournaments around the<br /> world each year, the IGMR will help increase sci-<br /> entific understanding of the distribution, popu-<br /> lation structure and biology of marlin, and<br /> engage anglers and the general public in the re-<br /> search process. By increasing our understanding<br /> of where these animals go and how they use<a title="IGMR_Support_2019 page 1" href="http://viewer.zmags.com/publication/e0a3fe6e?page=1"> </a> <a title="IGMR_Support_2019 page 2" href="http://viewer.zmags.com/publication/e0a3fe6e?page=2"> What is the IGFA Great Marlin Race?
