  • Description:
    "Fishermen and representatives of private, state, and federal organizations have contributed significantly over the past two decades to the billfish research database at the Southeast Fisheries Center. Recreational anglers, commercial fishermen, representatives of billfish tournaments, university researchers, state agents, federal employees and private research organizations have donated their time, effort, data, and funds. As a result, the Southeast Fisheries Center's billfish database is the world's most comprehensive source of scientific information on Atlantic blue marlin, white marlin, sailfish, and spearfish. These species are often referred to as "fish without a country" since their movement patterns encompass virtually the entire Atlantic Ocean and intersect the boundaries of many different nations. For this reason, we are now providing a more comprehensive presentation of research activities involving Southeast Fisheries Center scientists in this report to include work on billfish that occurs outside, as well as inside, United States jurisdictional waters"--Page 1, paragraph 1.
