This video shows the first time that a Go Pro camera has ever been attached to a billfish. It records the first moments after the sailfish has been released. The purpose of this experiment was to determine how quickly fish revived after the tagging process. The camera and both circle hooks were removed after 10 minutes. The video footage confirmed that our release process contributes to the safe release of the fish. As a result of our work we can now promote better ways of releasing billfish. Still much work to be done!
