  • Description:
    "Oceanic Gamefish Investigations were started in 1972 by the Southeast Fisheries Center (SEFC) to collect and evaluate recreational catch and effort data to aid in determining the status of the stocks of blue marlin (Makaira nigricans), white marlin (Tetrapturus albidus), and sailfish (Istiophorus platypterus), and to study their biology, life history, and ecology. This report presents and summarizes data collected for the years 1972 through 1981. Data were initially collected by Oceanic Gamefish Investigations (Miami Laboratory) personnel. In 1978, responsibility for the collection of data was transferred to the Office of Technical and Information Management Services (TIMS) of the SEFC. Data 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 poss-ible through the cooperation given .by sport fishermen, charter boat captains, and other big game fishing enthusiasts"--Introduction, paragraph 1.
