I am excited to see the Dolphinfish Research Program evolve to be supported by its own non-profit organization. This is important because it allows private citizens and foundations to make tax-deductible donations to a program that is dedicated to collecting scientific information on dolphinfish. A fish that is the number one harvested fish in blue water troll fisheries of the Gulf of Mexico and South Atlantic Bight. In fact, more dolphin are harvested in these areas than are king mackerel, yellowfin tuna, blackfin tuna and wahoo combined and it’s exciting to know that Beyond Our Shores, Inc., is focused on the conservation of this species for future generates to enjoy.
