FWC to Discuss Boca Grande Tarpon

The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission will meet in Tampa Sept 5-6 to discuss Boca Grande’s tarpon fishery. Kenneth Wright, FWC chairman, supports creating a protective sportsfish category covering marlin, sailfish, bonefish and tarpon.

“There’s been enough attention brought to me and the FWC that I am going to be looking into it and holding a tarpon summit bringing together representatives of the tarpon guides, Bonefish & Tarpon Trust as well as Professional Tarpon Tournament Series and get as many of those parties together to get the facts on the table,” Wright said.
