Due to the fantastic Sailfish catches and the effort of the captains practicing tag & release in ZIH they are in desperate need of billfish tags. We thought we had a good supply with about 400 on hand but these are being RAPIDLY USED UP. At a rate of 25+ per day.

If you plan on fishing while in the area, PLEASE consider taking a packet of tags as part of the tip to the crew.

These are available from the Billfish Foundation, Ms. Kay Davy at 1-800-438-8247 or 954-938-0150 ext. #101, fax 954-938-5311, item # 35-445-704-00, $19.99. 10 tags & cards, use what you need, leave the rest with the crew. Everybody always needs more tags!!

For your efforts you will receive a very nice certificate indicating the day, captain and vessel on which you tagged your fish.

Give us a hand if you can. We don't need these fish used as cat food and fertilizer!!
