Billfish by zoneThe 2010/11 season saw the billfish numbers fall significantly after the record numbers seen over the last three seasons. Broadbill numbers were down due to very few trips out deep at night due to the piracy threat. Most Broadbill were caught in the day drifting deep, a first for Kenya.
