El Pescador has worked with BTT and their tagging program since 2009 to tag permit, bonefish and tarpon in order to answer basic questions about population, growth rates and movements.

The tournament requires anglers and guides to not only measure the fish before release, but to tag and/or collect genetic data for testing. This is a charity tournament benefitting Bonefish Tarpon Trust. Tournament, information is available at http://www.elpescador.com/fishing/btt-tournament.
