The Tarpon & Bonefish Research Center is a cooperative effort of scientists and top professional guides for the conservation and management of tarpon. A unique and exciting aspect of the program is that anyone can participate. By contacting and arranging a charter with any of these top professional guides, you can contribute to the research by catching, tagging, and releasing a tarpon for future study or catching a tarpon that has been already tagged and reporting your catch to the project. These guides have voluntarily given significant time and effort in support of this research project. Their dedication to the conservation of this resource should be applauded.
We hope you will contact one of them the next time you plan a tarpon fishing trip!
