Fisheries researchers have overlooked bonefish and tarpon for years in favor of species with higher food value. But thanks to Bonefish & Tarpon Unlimited (BTU) researchers are examining the spawning and migration habits of these great game fish. The South Florida organization sponsored research using pop-up archival-transmitting and acoustic-telemetry tags to learn more about the dynamics of each species. BTU is also sponsoring a scientific symposium this January in partnership with the International Game Fish Association, the Florida Fish & Wildlife Conservation Commission, University of Miami and others.
