Bonefish Research

Dr. Liz Wallace is working closely with partners at the Bonefish and Tarpon Trust, Cape Eleuthera Institute and Fisheries Conservation Foundation to study population connectivity between bonefish in Florida, The Bahamas and across the Caribbean. Since this project began, the communications team has teamed up with Liz to share project updates, photos and videos with anglers and the general public using social media and the FWRI website. Angler outreach and education is an important part of this study, and our online efforts aim to inform anglers and encourage them to get involved by collecting bonefish fin clips for ongoing genetics research. The data collected during this study will ultimately benefit the fishery, and our team will continue working with researchers to fulfill their outreach needs for this project.

The following is a sample of posts created by the Communications Office to promote this project.
