Keepemwet and the Bonefish & Tarpon Trust Science Symposium

BTT_KWF.jpg

Big news with our friends in the saltwater community as we begin an exciting new partnership with @bonefishtarpontrust and their 6th International Science Symposium. Follow along this weekend with live reporting, interviews and presentation articles by our own Sascha Clark Danylchuk. Big thanks to Ed Anderson for providing the rich and stunning artwork to accompany this exclusive reporting.

At the core of both Bonefish & Tarpon Trust and Keepemwet Fishing is the belief that recreational anglers are a key component of fish conservation and that science-based approaches to education and outreach can help create healthier fisheries

BTT and Keepemwet Fishing are teaming up to make the science presented at the BTT Symposium accessible to a wider audience. A selection of the science presentations from the symposium will be summarized and “translated” into non-technical language that is easily understood by non-scientists. These summaries will be available on multiple platforms, highlight pertinent findings, and contain actionable items that anglers can use to help in conservation efforts.

Ambassador Profile: Dr. Aaron Adams

Aaron is the Director of Science and Conservation for Bonefish & Tarpon Trust and a Senior Scientist at Harbor Branch Oceanographic Institute of Florida Atlantic University. He received a bachelor’s degree from St. Mary’s College in Maryland, a Master’s degree from the College of William and Mary, and a Ph.D. from the University of Massachusetts Boston, and also holds a Coast Guard Captain’s License. He has lived, worked, and fished on both coasts of the US, as well as throughout the Caribbean, where he has been conducting fish research for more than 25 years. His pursuit of effective fisheries and habitat conservation are rooted in his years growing up near Chesapeake Bay, where he witnessed the decline of the Bay’s habitats and fisheries.

His scientific focus has been on conducting applied research with conservation implications (from coral reef to recreational species), with a particular interest in fish habitat ecology. As Director of Science and Conservation, Aaron is responsible for formulating and implementing BTT’s science and conservation plan.

In addition to his duties at BTT, Aaron is also an avid angler, and spends considerable effort translating fish science into fishermen’s terms – including authoring three books and contributing to numerous other books.

 "Although catch & release fishing is a valuable conservation tool that can lead to more and bigger fish in the fishery, just because a fish swims away doesn't mean that it lives to be caught another day. The tips below for increasing the chances that a released fish survives are based on scientific research focused on experimental angling for bonefish. Be a responsible angler - use Best Practices for Bonefish Catch & Release." Click here to view the full article.
