Billfish, a family of fishes that includes marlin, sailfish and spearfish, are as mysterious as they are majestic. Sadly, they are also among the most threatened fish in the ocean as a result of decades of overfishing by commercial fleets on the high seas. Wild Oceans has been dedicated to “Bringing Back the Big Fish” since we were founded nearly 50 years ago. Our new Wild Oceans Kona Project will advance conservation of Pacific billfish by exploring their life history and identifying spawning and nursery areas critical to their survival. Check out our new Billfish Life Cycle graphic to learn more about the fascinating journey of a growing billfish.
