Bonefish and Tarpon Trust’s Belize Flats Trip

About this time of year I start thinking about Caribbean possibilities and this one is particularly intriguing. Fish like crazy and help a great research cause in the process. What’s not to like. Give this a read. Let me know if you sign up for the foray—if you do I’ll reach out for images and a story for our readers.

Frontiers Travel is announcing a special opportunity for just 10 anglers to team up with them and the Bonefish and Tarpon Trust (BTT) to participate in cutting-edge catch-and-release fisheries science on June 14-20, 2014 at Belcampo Lodge in Belize. Co-hosted by Todd Calitri, fishing director of Belcampo Lodge and Bonefish and a Tarpon Trust scientist, guests will apply as many standard spaghetti tags as possible and hopefully mark up to 10 large permit with satellite tags. This tagging event will enable BTT to closely track the movements of these fish for an extended period.

This study will provide Belize with the necessary information to start creating conservation zones and rod-limited fisheries. The cost for this six-night / five-day trip is $2,740 per person based on double occupancy and shared boat / guide.
