The US based Bonefish & Tarpon Trust (BTT) conducts research into the population dynamics of bonefish, permit and tarpon primarily.
All anglers who fish the flats should support this work by joining up as a member and this is one of the reasons I wanted to raise the profile of BTT in the UK and Europe.
If you travel to fish the flats, whether on your own or with one of the angling destination firms, please join the BTT and help fund the important research they carry out to safeguard the species you and I like to fish for.
You can also get involved directly by coming along on one of their 'Travelling Angler' trips and getting involved in the research first-hand.
We need corporate and individual sponsors to come forward in the UK and Europe to help fund some of the more expensive projects like satellite tagging for example.
