This semester the Island School students on the Flats Ecology research team will be learning different techniques for catching, measuring, and tagging bonefish.  This valuable information will be a great resource on growth rates, survivorship and movement patterns of bonefish.  Recently, tagged bonefish from Florida have been found here in The Bahamas! This fact brings up interesting questions on migration patterns and physical differences between bonefish in Florida and The Bahamas.  Students will be getting an opportunity to seine and fly fish with the flats ecology researchers, helping gather information that will then be  a resource in conserving and protecting bonefish fisheries.
