Costa Del Mar Permit Tagging Program

Costa Del Mar has agreed to fund and support a multi-year, statewide tagging study of Permit in Florida. A donation of $15,000 in the first year will allow us to purchase thousands of tags and materials for tagging kits, and will go a long way toward researching permit movements and the fishery.

This project will allow us to work with Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission to capture some of the information that is currently missing from state fisheries data. Permit tagging is a Florida statewide research program and relies on volunteer angling efforts to tag and recapture permit. Costa Del Mar will be working hard with BTT to promote the program, get guides and anglers involved, and get the word out about what we’re doing. We’re indebted to Costa Del Mar and can’t thank them enough for their financial support of our vital research and conservation initiatives.

How to tag a permit
