Costa Marlin Fly Project

Costa Sunglasses’ Marlin Fly Project, which was conducted in collaboration with the Billfish Foundation, the International Game Fish Association, and the University of Southern Mississippi Center for Fisheries Research & Development, deployed 15 satellite tags on striped marlin in Magdalena Bay, Mexico. The tags will track the fish for up to five years, providing scientists with valuable information that can be used to protect and conserve billfish populations, including post-release survivability, migration patterns, swimming depth, and water temperature. An additional 20 spaghetti tags will provide important ongoing recapture data. The discoveries from the program will help fill crucial data gaps and aid in global and local efforts to conserve this highly migratory species.
