This data on Atlantic tarpon movement patterns and habitat use will be used to improve conservation efforts.
Through this project, BTT aim to uncover the connectivity between various regions of the western Atlantic and the Gulf of Mexico by discovering:-
If tarpon use the same spawning sites each year.
If changes to freshwater flows into coastal areas including the Florida Everglades, Apalachicola, St. Lucie River, Caloosahatchee River, and Indian River Lagoon influence tarpon movements.
Determine the movement patterns and habitat use of tarpon.
According to BTT this information is essential to protect the future of the fishery.

BTT would like to extend their thanks to Capt. Travis Holeman and Capt. Bear Holeman for putting on them on the fish and Neil Rojas from Cudjoe Sales Fishermen’s Warehouse for hooking them up with the right tackle to catch them!
