In conjunction with Mote Marine and the Bonefish & Tarpon Trust, Lemon Bay Conservancy is participating in pioneer research on juvenile tarpon. Never before has there been any data on juvenile tarpon, in part because they are not a “game fish”. This research is vital to habitat preservation and understanding juvenile tarpon growth.
