BTT’s Bahamas Bonefish Tagging Program is reporting its first recapture. A 19.1-inch bonefish, tagged by guide Buddy and Cindy Pinder in the Southern Marls of Abaco in August 2009, was recaptured on May 14, 2010 by guide Robin Albury. Hundreds of bonefish have been tagged in Abaco so far. More recaptures will build a good picture of movements and habitat use by these important gamefish.
