The new IGFA Roosterfish Research Program is a two-year project that examines the population structure and connectivity of roosterfish populations along the Pacific coast of Mexico and Central America.

Despite being one of the most prominent inshore game fish species in the world, very little is known about roosterfish. This new program will help to address that.

Learn more about the program and how you can get rewarded for your support by watching the video below.

For more information about how you can get involved with the project contact IGFA Conservation Director Dr. Bruce Pohlot at .
