Research Expeditions

Available on all our vessels our 4 or 6 hr Catch/Tag/Release will be an adventure for the whole family! These trips are available year-round. Join our certified Gray FishTag Research Crews to Catch, Tag, and Release all species in The Gulf of Mexico. Make sure to bring your camera and your thinking cap for a great name of you fish!
 

We’ll fish within 30 miles, and you’ll be able to participate in a worldwide research tagging program. You will be able to tag, name, take photos with your catch and release for future recapture. Upon recapture you'll receive an update of information which includes; location, date, health, and sizing data of your fish. Your tagged fish information is available online via an interactive map at https://grayfishtagresearch.org/. Being a part of the tagging program you are supplying valuable data to scientists and biologists for no cost on migration patterns, fish stocks, growth rates, habitat depths, and much more.  

 

Whatever fish you catch that are in season, you'll have the choice to either keep or tag and release.
