The current year of 2014, began being a good year for tagging dolphin then it quickly turned into an upright outstanding year! This is the second superlative year of dolphin tagging so far, due to the appearance of hefty numbers of dolphin off the Southeast Coast of Florida. Numerous marine anglers are working very hard in labeling fish to ensure the achievement of the Dolphinfish Research Program.

The 2014 tagging determination for each zone converses and compares to the historical average. There is news on the tag recoveries and offers vital information about the dolphin behavior in broad areas or zones.
According to Florida Sport Fishing magazine, “The total number of dolphin were tagged through August 31, 2014 is 1,771 fish. Anglers that were fishing off the Florida Keys (zone 2) were the most active in tagging and marked 770 so far. South Florida anglers from Jupiter Inlet to Key Largo (zone 3) also had an outstanding year with 601 fish tagged as of the end of August. So far, this is the second highest number of fish marked in a single year in these two zones. The Dolphinfish Research Program is an effort by fishermen for the fishermen.” 

This year has been incredibly effective in marking dolphin in the Atlantic and Caribbean. Tag recoveries have been greater than the standard and provide fresh understanding into the actions of dolphin.
This DRP program can use your support in order to continue, since no government currency is obtainable. It is private anglers, fishing establishments and companies that arrange for the funding that allow this research to linger.

Reflect on making a contribution to keep this important and very positive research program functioning and collect information to study.
