Last year, the good folks at the Bonefish and Tarpon Trust (BTT) launched their Juvenile Tarpon Habitat Initiative, where they began mapping juvenile tarpon habitat in hopes of determining important habitat characteristics for juvenile tarpon, as well as to protect and enhance otherwise known juvenile tarpon habitats.
According to BTT, degradation of juvenile tarpon habitat is the single largest threat to the well being of adult tarpon populations worldwide. Therefore, protecting these habitats is extremely important.
BTT is looking to identify more juvenile tarpon habitats, to help preserve tarpon populations for the future, but they need your help!
So, if you know of any locations that hold juvenile tarpon that are 12 inches long or less, BTT would love to hear about it. For more information on how to contact them, click here to see the release on their website.
