Simrad
Simrad has announced that it has joined The Billfish Foundation and is one of their 2014 tagging program sponsors. The Foundation has developed the world’s largest private billfish-tagging database as a result of its
Tag and Release Program. Simrad Yachting’s partnership will help the Foundation advance this cornerstone sustainability and advocacy program, as well as support its efforts to advance the conservation of billfish and
associated species worldwide.
 
“As a global leader in the engineering and development of sport fishing technology, Simrad Yachting is committed to protecting our worldwide fisheries,” said Leif Ottosson, CEO of Navico. “We are proud to support the Billfish Foundation. The work and information they provide is vital to ensuring these important fish stocks are sustainable into the future.”
 
“It is critical for all of us in the sport fishing industry to take an active roll in protecting our fisheries”, said John Brownlee, outreach committee chair, The Billfish Foundation. “We applaud and thank Simrad Yachting for
their support of our efforts. Commitment from forward-thinking companies helps us ensure we can continue to make a difference.”
 
The Billfish Foundation works worldwide to advance the conservation of billfish and associated species to improve the health of oceans and economies. The Organization receives and studies over 15,000 tag and release records from around the world to understand species growth rates, patterns, habitat utilization and post-release survival rates. This data provides valuable information for stock assessments that are vital for policy, scientific advancement, and protection for billfish and associated species around the world. Simrad Yachting’s generous partnership and support of the Billfish Foundation will ensure that this important work continues throughout 2014.
