The 2015/2016 Bisbee’s Eastern Pacific Division Great Marlin Race is now underway! 8 teams are participating in this year’s Bisbee’s great Marlin Race. Of these 8 tag sponsors 3 tags have been successfully deployed in fish, so the race is now underway. Tags are programmed to pop up 180 days from deployment, so our next issue will reveal the winner for the tag that travels furthest from where it was tagged and released. Last year’s winner (Sporty Game) travelled over 1,300 miles in the 6 month period, crossing the equator and then returning further north.
