Large Pelagics Reasearch Center

Modeled after the Pelagic Fisheries Research Group (PFRP) in the Pacific, LPRC began as a Center to stimulate and conduct research on key species of interest to commercial and recreational fisheries and marine ecosystems in the Atlantic Ocean. The Center, established in 2003 at the University of New Hampshire, functioned as an academic research group and as a coordinator and source of extramural funding for other large pelagic species research.

In 2015, LPRC joined the School for the Environment at the University of Massachusetts Boston and the Graduate School of Marine Science. They are located in Gloucester, MA and, as part of the Massachusetts Marine Fisheries Institute, are working to partner with the fishing communities of Gloucester and New England.

The Billfish Foundation

The Billfish Foundation (TBF) was established in 1986 by scientists and concerned anglers who were worried about dwindling billfish stocks and the future of sportfishing. Working worldwide, TBF’s research programs are the backbone of our advocacy and education efforts to ensure that fish stocks are protected and ample sportfishing opportunities are available for future generations. Utilizing both scientific and socio-economic research to show the importance of healthy billfish stocks and impacts on recreational fishing, TBF works with international fisheries management organizations and governments to increase conservation measures that benefit both fish and local communities dependent upon sportfishing.
