Through the generous support of Costa Del Mar and the March Merkin Permit Tournament, BTT has been conducting a multi-year, statewide tagging study of permit in Florida to learn more about permit movement patterns. This project will allow us to work with anglers and the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission to capture some of the information that is currently missing from state fisheries data. Permit tagging is a Florida statewide research program and relies on volunteer angling efforts to tag and recapture permit. Costa Del Mar will be working hard with BTT to promote the program, get guides and anglers involved, and get the word out about what we're doing. We're indebted to Costa Del Mar and the March Merkin and can't thank them enough for their financial support of our vital research and conservation initiatives.
