6th International Science Symposium Overview
Don’t miss the greatest gathering of flats fishing we can fit under one roof!
Sixth International Bonefish & Tarpon Symposium
November 10-11, 2017
The Bonefish & Tarpon Trust 6th International Science Symposium takes place November 10—11, 2017, at the Bonaventure Resort and Spa, in Weston, Florida. Register today and make plans to join other anglers, guides, conservationists, fishing industry leaders, and scientists for what promises to be the most comprehensive flats fishing event in the world.
The global leader in bonefish, tarpon and permit conservation, BTT has once again assembled the top scientists in the world of flats ecology to share their research findings on why fish do what they do—and how that knowledge benefits the species, their habitats and the larger fisheries they support. Featured scientific presentations will spotlight BTT’s ongoing science and conservation programs in the Florida Keys, Bahamas, and elsewhere across the Caribbean Basin, including recently completed studies on bonefish and tarpon genetics, the role of ocean currents in juvenile bonefish recruitment, a landmark effort to spawn and raise bonefish in captivity, and the role of water quality in ensuring healthy habitats.
