Tag and Release
Recapture and Research
We support 'Tag & Release' programs for Tuna and Billfish and many of our tags have been returned. Some recent tag recaptures were a 10lb Yellowfin Tuna, tagged by us and recaptured 605 days later, in Puerto Rico, at 36lb. Also, an 8lb Yellowfin Tuna was recaptured in the Cape Hatteras area at 35lb, after 545 days at large. A Blue Shark, tagged by us in June 2000 was caught, by a longliner, 278 miles SW of Faial Azores in February 2001 - 228 days at liberty and 1603 miles from Bermuda!
