Bonefish getting permanent protection in Florida

A solid congrats needs to be sent out to the folks at the Bonefish & Tarpon Trust for their work to preserve and protect Bonefish in Florida (and other places, but for this post, Florida) with a boatload of irrefutable science (see, that’s what they do).

The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission decided Wednesday to move forward on a new rule that would declare bonefish a catch-and-release species, with no harvest of them allowed.

Love it.  Gotta get over there… have not fished in Florida, which seems a little silly now.  Well, thinking about it, I actually did fish Florida… but it was a long, long, long time ago.  I was 10.  There was spin fishing off some beach… I caught a crab.

  1. I’m happy to see that their efforts are paying off. I’d like to think that it was from my membership that this happened. I hope there is more on the horizon for BTT.

  2. This is great and something we here on Aitutaki could only hope to some day emulate. I did forward this to a few of our local concerns to help them see the way forward.
