Thanks to the following sponsors for supporting the
CSS Dolphinfish Research Program!

2015 Sponsors . . .
® Copyright 2005-2016. CSS, LLC
Tag Dolphin - Win Great Stuff!
     Anglers who tag 10 or more dolphinfish in one year and captains whose vessels tag 20 or more dolphinfish in one year will receive a program T-shirt recognizing them for their contribution to the Dolphinfish Research Program. Individuals reporting a tag recovery also receive a program T-shirt. Because program shirts are not available for purchase, wearing one identifies you as a participant in the scientific research of dolphinfish.
     Awards are offered to the top performing boats each year in recognition of their contribution to science and to add a touch of competition for the anglers. At the end of each year awards are presented to the boats and individual tagging the most fish. To qualify to win, boats must tag a minimum of 20 dolphin that year and have tagged the most fish of any boat in that division. Six Shimano TLD reels on Star Standup rods will be given to the top taggers in each division (a $550 value).

Awards will be given to the following:

Top Overall Private Boat
Top Overall Charter Boat       
Top Boat in the Mid-Atlantic Bight 
Top Boat in the South Atlantic Bight
Top Boat in the Gulf of Mexico
Top Boat in the Tropics (Bahamas and Caribbean Islands)
    Year-end awards are made possible through the generosity of Haddrell’s Point Tackle and Supply of Charleston and Mt. Pleasant, South Carolina, who are providing the reels, Star Rods, a division of Big Rock Sports of Graham, North Carolina and Costa Del Mar, who is providing a gift package as the second place award that includes a pair of their world famous sunglasses. These conservation-minded businesses recognize the importance of dolphinfish to the offshore blue water fishery and the need for proactive research before dolphin stocks decline.
    Fishermen are asked to show their appreciation for these companies and the businesses, organizations and individuals who support this important research program. Anglers should support those businesses and organizations that seek to ensure the future health of dolphinfish stocks.
