Smith-Merritt Insurance & Bonnier Marine Group Host the Annual TBF Awards Ceremony & Party

Where: Big Game Room, Miami Boat Show
When: Thursday, February 12, 2009 - 6:00 pm

The Billfish Foundation, Smith-Merritt Insurance & Marlin, Salt Water Sportsman & Sport Fishing Magazines invite you to attend the annual presentation of TBF's Tag and Release Awards. These prestigious awards recognize the Captains, Mates, and Anglers (including Youth and Ladies) who have tagged and released the most of each billfish species in each of the world's three major oceans during the previous year. Through this program TBF gathers important data for scientists to use in assessing the stock abundance, age and growth patterns and migration routes of these amazing fish.

The gorgeous trophies are donated by King Sailfish Mounts of Fort Lauderdale. Each trophy is a work of art and represents a tremendous accomplishment by the winner.

The Presidential Challenge Charitable Foundation, Inc is the sponsor of the overall trophies, including Top Captain, Top Angler and Top Lady Angler. These winners are the "best of the best", having tagged and released more billfish collectively than any other winner.

Boat Show tickets are required to attend. TBF members can reserve their free tickets by calling Deborah Cummings at (954) 938-0150, ext. 106 or emailing Deborah_Cummings@billfish.org
