Every year, The Billfish Foundation (TBF) recognizes the captains, mates and anglers (including youth and ladies) who tag and release the most billfish in each of the world’s oceans. The competition is categorized by billfish species, ocean, and whether the fish were tagged or released untagged. Award winners are recognized with beautiful trophies provided by King Sailfish Mounts at TBF’s Annual Tag & Release Awards Ceremony held during the Miami International Boat Show.
Now TBF will be offering regular updates to the competition, to let captains, mates, and anglers know who are in the Top 5 for each category. Please go to our Facebook Fan Page to see some of them now, but you can wait for our next issue of Billfish magazine to see them all. If you have any questions on the competition please go here or here for Frequently asked questions or things to consider.
We have currently showing the Top Overall Tagging Captain and Angler, Top Overall Release Captain and Angler, as well as Top Tagging Angler of Atlantic Sailfish. Come check it out and “like” our fan page!
