Abstract

Trends in US recreational catch and effort data for Atlantic blue marlin and white marlin from 1972 to 2000 are examined. A method for predicting and setting minimum size regulations for this fishery is described. Additionally, this paper re-examines the impact of the most recent minimum size increases on the US recreational fishery for Atlantic marlin. The effectiveness of setting minimum size limits as a primary management approach is discussed, as is the increase in catch and release fishing in the US recreational marlin fishery.
