    Just out of interest, why are they killing small Marlin like that - I don't understand why you wouldn't tag and release a small fish that like?

    They bring a decent price at the market. It helps keep them in business.

    ok, thought it might be something like that - Marlin only get used as bait in Bermuda so we only tend to kill them during competitions and only then if they are over 500lbs
    Thanks for explanation

    i agree with twister, i seems that the small marlin are only brought in for a photo op. good job on the mahi none the less.

    see here http://www.bdoutdoors.com/forums/hawaii-fishing/102410-marlin-mortality.html

    how exactly does it seem that the marlin are brought in for a photo op? was there a picture i missed of the crew tossing the marlins off the end of the dock? would you say the same thing if that was a swordfish vs. a marlin hanging there? seen the link the price for au filet? guess what au is marlin, marlin is worth more in hawaii then swordfish. i hope that puts things in a more understandable light in reference to our fishery here.
