"Bonefish & Tarpon Trust is a non-profit, membership-based organization dedicated to the conservation of saltwater flats species – particularly bonefish, tarpon, and permit – and their habitats. BTT works with experts in marine biology, statistics, economics, and other related fields to gather knowledge that will help us to understand, nurture, and enhance healthy bonefish, tarpon, and permit populations. BTT uses the knowledge gained from research to educate the public about best practices in angling, and with resource management agencies to protect and conserve the fisheries." – Bonefish & Tarpon Trust Website
