Project Description

Researchers at Florida International University have partnered with Bonefish and Tarpon Trust to create PROJECT BAY BONES and investigate changes in South Florida waters, and how these changes may affect the quality of bonefishing.  We want to go back in the past to see how bonefish populations and distrubutions have changed over time. In order to do that we need YOUR help to fill in critical knowledge gaps on how bonefishing has changed in south Florida over the years. In the absence of scientific data on the health of bonefish populations, angler knowledge is an invaluable source of information. Thus, your participation is vital to the conservation of bonefish and to ensuring high quality fishing in the future!
