Help with BTT research on Florida Permit Help with BTT research on Florida Permit

Costa Del Mar has agreed to fund a multi-year, statewide tagging study of Permit in Florida. A donation of $15,000 in the first year will allow the Bonefish & Tarpon Trust to purchase thousands of tags and materials for tagging kits.

This will go a long way toward researching permit movements and the fishery. This project will allow the Bonefish & Tarpon Trust to work with Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission to capture some of the information that is currently missing from state fisheries data. Costa Del Mar will be working hard with BTT to promote the program, get guides and anglers involved, and get the word out about what they’re doing.

BTT are indebted to Costa Del Mar and can’t thank them enough for their financial support of their vital research and conservation initiatives. Please stay tuned for more details in 2010.

How can you help?

If you would like to be on the list of guides and anglers who receive a tagging kit, please send them an email by clicking on the link.
