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, genetically speaking. That’s pretty amazing. All those fish and all those places are basically the same fish, genetically speaking. The fish in West Africa are basically genetically indistinguishable from the fish in Florida.
Read BTT’s blog post about it here. Pretty interesting stuff.
