Support Solid Scientific Research IGFA Great Marlin Race There are many ways you can participate in the IGMR. The first way is to sponsor a tag for a future IGMR event. Tags cost $4,500 USD which pays for the tag itself, the titanium dart, satellite communication time, and soft costs which include painting, leadering, and programming the tags and managing the data. Another way you can get involved is to host or help coordinate a tagging event. Contact us if you think you can help secure five tag sponsorships in an area of good billfishing. “The IGMR helps keep the sport alive” –Martin Firestein, winner of the 2013-2014 IGFA Great Marlin Race Lastly, you can make a gift to the IGMR. the IGFA receives no profit from tag sponsorships, so all amounts help support billfish research worldwide. Visit www.igfa.org/Conserve/Get-Involved-in-the-IGMR.aspx for upcoming events or email IGFA Conservation Coordinator Leah Baumwell at lbaumwell@igfa.org to discuss additional ways to get involved with the IGMR.
