Blackadore Caye, Belize, is a sliver of an island in the middle of a vast sand flat in northern Belize – located about halfway between Ambergris Caye and the mainland. The flats surrounding the caye have been an important location for flats fishing since the earliest days of the fishery. Multiple generations of flats fishing guides have now poled these flats in pursuit of bonefish, permit and tarpon.
Damage to flats habitats – whether from dredging, construction, pollution – have immediate and long-lasting impacts on the fish that live there. According to Dr. Aaron Adams, Director of Science and Conservation at Bonefish & Tarpon Trust (BTT), tag-recapture data from research sponsored by BTT underscores how important habitat conservation is to a healthy fishery.
