Support IGFA Marlin Research

It's a Win-Win!

As an avid angler and member of the IGFA we're asking you to help support the IGFA Great Marlin Race (IGMR), the world's most extensive satellite tagging program for billfish.
The IGMR, presented by Costa® Sunglasses, is a research collaboration between the IGFA and Stanford University. Recreational anglers, armed with cutting-edge satellite tag technology, become citizen scientists and deploy tags on the fish they catch.

The tags transmit data to researchers who learn more about billfish biology and how these fish interact with their habitat. When you support the IGMR, you ensure a future for billfish, and receive a generous thank you package from our partners at Costa® Sunglasses.

Here's How You Can Help! Support the IGMR online: For additional information, or to make your contribution over the phone, please feel free to reach out to IGFA Headquarters at 954-924-4246, or email us at Thank you in advance for your support of this critical program. With your help, we can help secure the future of billfish for years to come!
