About The Billfish Foundation: 

The Billfish Foundation (TBF) was founded in 1986 with a mission of conserving billfish worldwide by the late Winthrop P. Rockefeller along with Dr. Eric Prince and a group of fifty founding members. TBF’s keystone program, the traditional tagging program, started in 1990. Today, it has grown to be the largest international billfish tagging program in the world.

TBF’s initial focus was on research and educational programs. In 1990, TBF’s focus was expanded to include advocacy for responsible fisheries management, recognizing that influencing decision makers with sound science was a crucial step in successful billfish conservation. Today the Billfish Foundation is a globally recognized organization that has done so much for Atlantic and Pacific billfish research and conservation.
