A cooperative Marine fish tagging program to improve our understanding of marine sport fish movements, patterns of habitat use and population dynamics.
Tag It Tournament
A virtual tournament series that helps collect valuable information about sport fish. Anglers take photos of their catch via our Angler Almanac app and tag their releases.
Turn your phone into one of your favorite fishing tools while also turning your catch into citizen scientist data that can be utilized to modernize fish management.
Fishial.AI Fish ID Photo Challenge
RFRI has partnered with the Wye Foundation on the Fishial.AI Fish ID Project with the goal of making highly accurate fish identification "Fishial Recognition" possible. Anglers can join the photo challenge to contribute.
Marine Sport Fish Enhancement
In the states of Texas and Florida, supplemental, hatchery-based stocking, in combination with standard management practices, has resulted in a successful and sustaining program of Red Drum enhancement.
Outdoors & Education Programs
In a time when technology often holds us captive, RFRI understands the importance of getting outside, being physically active, embracing teamwork and connecting with nature and each other.
Fishing tournaments continue to grow in popularity and diversity of formats, but putting them on has never been easier with the development of the RFRI Leaderboard software.
Inshore Artificial Reef Program
The creation of inshore reefs provide two main benefits: they assist in reducing coastal erosion and restore hard bottom and essential fish habitats where it had previously existed.
RFRI Socio/Economic Survey
The survey provided insight on the types of anglers who participate in competitive fishing events, their motivations, expenditures, and their overall economic impact.
Live Catch and Release Redfish Tournaments
With low entry fees, tournaments allow anglers to fish close to home and compete for cash prizes while simultaneously giving back to the resource through tag and release fishing.
RFRI leads the way with novel ideas continuing to leave a legacy of leadership. Contact us for more information or to support current or future projects, please consider making a contribution.
