新澳门六合彩开奖直播 and Stanford University partner to form the 新澳门六合彩开奖直播 Great Marlin Race

Under the leadership of 新澳门六合彩开奖直播 Chairman at the time Packy Offield and 新澳门六合彩开奖直播 President Rob Kramer, the 新澳门六合彩开奖直播 partnered with Stanford University to establish the 新澳门六合彩开奖直播 Great Marlin Race. Barbara Block鈥檚 team at Stanford University had been a world leader in biologging science for over two decades. The Block Lab was instrumental in developing the original Great Marlin Race that was initiated in 2009 by Dr. Block and 新澳门六合彩开奖直播 representative, Robert Kurz with the guidance of Peter Fithian, 新澳门六合彩开奖直播 Trustee and Chairman of the Hawaiian International Billfish Tournament (HIBT), to commemorate the 50th year of the HIBT.  This new partnership expanded the Great Marlin Race concept into a global marlin tagging campaign with the objectives of:

1) Increasing the participation of recreational billfish anglers worldwide in electronic tagging science

2) Generating  scientific information on global billfish, including the development of an open-access database of tag data

3) Facilitating public and educational outreach through electronic and traditional media.
