    4th Annual Belize River Lodge /BTT  Tagging Challenge

    Challenge Dates: March 25 to April 1, 2015

    Next year offers another great opportunity to help us try and collect data for our ongoing study with Bonefish & Tarpon Trust (BTT) on the sporting species, Bonefish, Permit and Tarpon, all while having tons of fun doing what you like to do – saltwater Flats fishing. Fish for the species you prefer, Bonefish, Tarpon &/or Permit. If you land a Bonefish or Permit, you measure and spaghetti tag these fish. With Tarpon, all are DNA tested after measuring. Maybe you can be the first angler to land a spaghetti tagged Bonefish or Permit during the challenge. To date, BRL anglers and guides have spaghetti tagged over 500 fish, with 6 being Permit. We have also had 5 recaptures of tagged bonefish, with the longest being tagged a little under two years, with no measureable growth in that time. Help us, help the Belize’s Saltwater Flats fish. Join our 4th Annual Tagging Challenge, March 25 to April 1, 2015. Please contact BRL at info@belizeriverlodge.com for more information or Denise (dschreiber@frontierstravel.com) at Frontiers.
