The Bonefish & Tarpon Trust (formerly Bonefish & Tarpon Unlimited) was developed for a simple reason – to support research, education, and conservation of bonefish and tarpon. At BTU’s inception in 1998, little data existed on bonefish and tarpon, two of the world’s most popular saltwater gamefish. BTU is made up of recreational anglers, guides, and marine industry leaders dedicated to increasing our knowledge of bonefish and tarpon biology so we may better manage these species and ensure the fisheries for future generations. BTT takes a science-based approach to conserving and protecting saltwater flats and the marine life that exists there. For a powerful look at their work, and the need for it, check out Pirates of the Flats.
