New Conservation Measures for Atlantic Marlin

This February, the IGFA will host the inaugural IGFA Light Tackle Invitational in Palm Beach Shores, Florida. With a maximum line class of 12-pound (6-kilogram) and strict adherence to IGFA Angling Rules, the IGFA Light Tackle Invitational is a genuine angler’s tournament and a platform for light tackle anglers from around the world to showcase their skills and sportsmanship.

At its recent annual meeting held in November, the International Commission for the Conservation of Atlantic Tunas (ICCAT) adopted measures aimed at rebuilding blue and white marlin stocks. A rebuilding plan put into place in 2013 has been largely unsuccessful, as both blue and white marlin stocks continue- to be overfished and blue marlin continue to be experiencing overfishing. New measures have recently been put in place to aid the rebuilding of both stocks.
