Bonefish & Tarpon Trust

Our name, Bonefish & Tarpon Trust, much underscores the goals we’re aiming to accomplish – ensuring healthy populations of bonefish and tarpon for the future. After eight years of existence, BTT is a leader in sponsoring and funding the research needed to accomplish our goals. Most of BTT's work is done by volunteer efforts, with only a very small portion of funds used to fund administrative functions. The vast majority of our budget goes directly to supporting research and education.
 

Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission for Snook Research

The Fish and Wildlife Research Institute's work includes assessment and restoration of ecosystems and studies of freshwater and marine fisheries, aquatic and terrestrial wildlife, imperiled species, and red tides. The institute develops the information science required to analyze and disseminate research products and engages in outreach activities to complement all programs. Through our program's strategic combination of scientific research, conservation management and public outreach we have established a new paradigm of cooperative fishery management.
 

Bonefish Tag and Study Program

The Tarpon and Bonefish Research Center (TBRC) at the University of Miami (UM) is an unparalleled leading international initiative for gathering and sharing scientific knowledge, educational resources and policy development related to the sustainment of marine sport fisheries and their ecosystems. At TBRC, we are managing fish and wildlife resources for their long-term well-being and the benefit of people.
