The Bonefish & Tarpon Trust wrapped up their tarpon genetic program and the results are a bit surprising. You know those tarpon in Florida? And the ones in Louisiana? And the ones in Mexico and the ones in Belize? Also, you know those tarpon in West Africa? They are all pretty much the same fish, […]
The good folks from the Bonefish and Tarpon Trust just concluded their study with the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission in attempts to determine just how many distinct populations of Atlantic Tarpon exist around the world. Why bother? Because a sound understanding of whether or not global populations are related makes a huge difference […]

In a recent video, Justin Lewis demonstrates how to take a fin clip sample from a bonefish for Bonefish and Tarpon Trust’s Bonefish Genetics Program, which studies the genetics of different populations of bonefish and their movements. From general stream … more ?
Earlier this spring, we told you about the Bonefish Genetics Program – A three year study conducted by the Bonefish and Tarpon Trust to better understand how bonefish in different locations are related. Surprisingly enough, the large scale life history of bonefish is still not widely understood, and the information gained from this study could […]
