Register with Black Moon to be a volunteer fisherman for Atlantic Bluefin tuna on the Thunnus UK 2020 programme. The 2019 programme has now finished and we wait to hear details of the 2020 Thunnus UK plans. You can register here and when we know the details of the 2020 programme we will get in touch with you.
Black Moon Sportfishing has partnered Cefas and Exeter University for the last two years ( 2018/19 seasons ) on the Thunnus UK research programme tagging Atlantic bluefin tuna from Falmouth. In the 2019 season we have tagged over 20 fish and the programme has gathered pace with over 30 fish tagged in total. During this season a number of volunteer recreational fisherman have joined our second boat assisting to catch more fish for the programme.
We will be applying to continue this work in 2020 and there may be an opportunity once again for volunteer fisherman to take our second boat out to catch Bluefin to be tagged. if you register here we will keep you updated with progress and you could contribute to the 2020 programme.
In order to be accepted by the Programme organisers as a recreational fisherman you will need to demonstrate experience in catching larger game fish.
We look forward to fishing with you.
