September 21, 2016

BTT and University of Massachusetts Amherst concluded a successful research trip collecting non-lethal blood samples from bonefish in Miami’s backyard, beautiful Biscayne Bay. A total of 25 blood samples were collected from Miami to North Key Largo in a mere five days thanks to the expertise of Captains Carl Ball, Martin Carranza, and Mo Estevez. We even collected a record 18 bonefish in one day with Captain Carl Ball - talk about a great day of bonefishing! Read on to find out what we're learning from these blood samples!
