The Connectivity project between Mexico and Belize by El Colegio de la Frontera Sur (ECOSUR) continues to have progress. Over 200 tagged bonefish were recovered in half a day of seining in Ambergris Caye.
This research started over a year and a half ago and has been possible thanks to Omar Arceo (Omar's Freelance Fishing) and Chepe Polanco from Blue Bonefish of San Pedro.
These areas where bonefish and permit have been tagged and recovered will be proposed to the Belize Fisheries Department for a possible protection from threats to the resource base and it's habitat. If this gets through, it will mean a better fishing for many anglers and an overall improvement to the fly fishing industry.
