329,000 Bonefish

The University of Miami and conservation group Bonefish & Tarpon Unlimited say that Florida Keys bonefish stocks are healthy after the second of their yearly counts. “The number is up slightly from last year’s 300,000-count, but that is probably because more guides were involved this year. Sport-fishing for bonefish is a $1-billion-a-year business in South Florida.” Don Wilson in The Orlando Sentinel.
