Tracking Bonefish in the Bahamas

Throughout the islands of The Bahamas, bonefishing is not only a popular sport, but also an important component of the tourism industry that contributes greatly to the economic health of many communities. For such a valuable fishery, surprisingly little is known about bonefish movements, particularly when it comes to migrations associated with their reproduction.

The Fisheries Conservation Foundation and the Ocean Tracking Network are working with various partners to address some of the much-needed information on bonefish movement and reproductive activities. We currently have two projects in The Bahamas using acoustic radio-telemetry to study bonefish movements. Learn about our efforts on these islands:
