Recreational fishing guide associations are of major importance to Bonefish & Tarpon Trust, and our partnerships with them are instrumental to our work. Since they are on the water most days of the year, guides are the eyes and ears of conservation of bonefish, tarpon, and permit fisheries. Guides are the first observers and can be the first line of defense of the resource. Guides interact with recreational anglers the most and can set good examples with their fishing practices and knowledge of fisheries. BTT understands the importance of fishing guides in conservation of these important fisheries, and is proud of our partnerships with the following guide associations.
