Support IGFA Great Marlin Race and get rewarded © IGFA

Since 2011, the IGFA Great Marlin Race has been deploying cutting-edge satellite tags on billfish around the world.

These tags transmit invaluable data to our partners at Stanford University that advances our knowledge of these species to help conserve them. To date, the IGFA Great Marlin Race has tagged over 500 billfish and logged enough tracked mileage to circumnavigate the globe more than 15 times!

As an avid angler and member of our global recreational angling community we're asking you to help support this great work for the next decade and beyond. When you support the IGFA Great Marlin Race, you ensure a future for billfish, and receive a generous thank you package from our partner and program sponsor Costa® Sunglasses and our friends at YETI. PLUS! For a limited time, a longtime supporter of the program is providing a $25,000 match for this campaign, so your donation will go even further! So please act now to double your impact on billfish conservation!
