  • Description:
    "Oceanic Gamefish Investigations were started in 1.972 by the Southeast Fisheries Center (SEFC) to collect and evaluate recreational catch and effort data to aid in determining stock status of blue marlin (Makaira nigricans , white marlin (Tetrapturus albidus), and sailfish (Istiophorus platypterus), and to study their biology and ecology. The purpose of this report is to present data for the years 1978, 1979, and 1980. Data were collected by the Office of Technical and Information Management Services (TIMS) of the SEFC, under the auspices of the Oceanic Gamefish Investigations program, and came from various fishing areas located throughout the Gulf of Mexico, the Caribbean, the Bahamas, the east coast of the United States, and the Florida Keys. This publication is made possible through the cooperation given by sport fishermen, charterboat captains, and other big game fishing enthusiasts. Fishermen are curious about this work and continually ask how both the data and the samples we collect from these fish are utilized. An additional section briefly explaining associated billfish research has been included to answer some of these questions"--Introduction.
