The Tarpon Acoustic Tagging Project is designed to broaden our understanding of tarpon movement and habitat uses. The results will help shape future conservation measures, including the protection of critical habitats and improvements to fishing regulations.
The five-year project, now in year three, uses acoustic telemetry to identify tarpon movement patterns and important habitats. It utilizes an extensive network consisting of thousands of acoustic receivers stretching across the Gulf of Mexico and along the coastline of the Southeastern US. To date, the project has tagged more than 130 tarpon and collected more than 70,000 detections.
We thank Maverick Boat Group for its generous support of this important project and its commitment to the conservation of the flats fishery.
