Tarpon Research, Video

In conjunction with Mote Marine and Bone Fish and Trust, Lemon Bay conservancy is participating in the pioneer research of juvenile tarpon. Never before has there been any data on juvenile tarpon due in part that they are not a “game fish”. This research is vital to the habit preservation and understanding the juvenile tarpon. Tarpon fishing contributes in excess of 110 million dollars to the local business community directly and indirectly. Over 25 volunteers are actively involved and helping with this research.
