Releases

For releases points to be awarded, ALL billfish caught & released must be authenticated by Video ONLY. No photos will be accepted.

Videos should be of the RELEASE and can be presented to the ASF judges either via a digital camera or cell phone, and a member of the crew must have the correct Number Card issued by ASF Radio present & clearly visible in the video.

 

Please view this video for an example of how this must be done. At 2 minutes into the video, you can see that as the fish comes to the boat, the number is clearly presented next to the fish and the video allows multiple opportunities for the correct species of fish to be clearly indentified and also shows the fish being released safely.
