Well… this is cool. A blog called “The Abaco Scientist.” Ruling.
They are tagging fish to track their movements and pinpoint spawning locations. If we know where they spawn, we can protect those places.
From the blog:
Today brought less-than-ideal weather for catching bonefish to tag – 25 mph winds and rain showers. Thanks to the hard work and dedication of Buddy and Cindy Pinder, Justin Sands, and Paul Pinder of the Abaco Fly Fishing Guides Association, we were able to find large schools of bonefish on the move in The Marls. By the end of the day, we had surgically implanted tags into 12 bonefish (6 males and 6 females). All 12 fish were sexually mature and “running ripe”
Good stuff. Keep up the good work!
