Bonefish Migrates from Miami to Bahamas

Surprising scientists who work in bonefish tagging and research, a bonefish caught by Captain Joe Gonzalez in Biscayne Bay in February 2005 was re-caught 321 days later in southwestern Andros. It’s an exciting revelation for bonefish researchers, because “this distance record is more than double the previous one of 75 miles (Key Largo to Big Pine Key). It also suggests that bonefish can migrate across the Gulf Stream and perhaps mix with the Bahamas bonefish population.” Press release from the Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric Science.
