UNDERSTANDING MIGRATORY PATTERNS AND LIFE HISTORY STRATEGIES OF LARGE PELAGICS Highly migratory species, such as marlin and tuna, are among the ocean’s most magnificent. With ranges that cover entire oceans, such fish are also very difficult to study. Deployment of satellite tags into billfish and tuna provides researchers and conservationists with the ability to understand migratory patterns and how to effectively manage their populations. Bass Pro Shops supports a number of satellite tagging studies. This cutting-edge research is essential to ensuring a bright future for fish that travel thousands of miles over the course of their lifetimes. These studies include: University of Maine Bluefin Tuna Tagging Program – Earlier in 2023, the Bass Pro Shops and Cabela’s Outdoor Fund made a 5-year, $250,000 commitment to support deployment of electronic tags on Atlantic bluefin tuna. The Great Marlin Race – A one-of-a-kind research collaboration between the IGFA, Stanford University, and the recreational sportfishing community. Bass Pro Shops is a long-term supporter and has sponsored tag deployments in blue and white marlin up and down the Eastern seaboard of the United States and broader Caribbean/Gulf of Mexico region.

TRACKING THE MIGRATORY PROGRESS OF THE ELUSIVE ATLANTIC BLUEFIN TUNA Ireland United Kingdom Nova Scotia Spain Johnny, Paul and Cookie Murray, Karl, U. Main Pelagic Fisheries lab assistant professor Walt Golet (in the foreground), and a team of biologist caught, tagged, and released Atlantic bluefin tuna in Nova Scotia and tracked their migratory progress all the way across the Atlantic near the shores of Portugal contributing to important conservation research.
