Hooked: Tagging a Marlin
Guy Harvey dives into dangerous waters to tag a fighting monster Marlin.
Guy Harvey is the Man. The killing of all Billfish species is illegal in Panamá these days, as it is in USA,. This means that they can't be brought in for official weighing and so new records cannot be set.
We keep electronic tags which can be attached by the fisherman without any danger to the fish. It is a practice that we approve of because there are still many gaps in our knowledge regarding the movement, migrations and breeding of the largest creatures of the sea.
