Statewide Tagging Program to Determine Movement Patterns of Permit

Little is known about movement patterns of permit, Trachinotus falcatus. This is the first statewide project designed to determine movement patterns of permit in Florida. Over a five year period, permit will be tagged with external dart tags. Data on tag and recapture locations will be used to estimate movements and connectivity of different apparent 'populations' within Florida. Objectives: To determine: 1) connectivity of permit populations throughout Florida; 2) the sources of permit that spawn on artificial and natural offshore reefs; 3) estimated catch rates using recapture data; 4) general movement patterns of permit in Florida And to involve recreational fishermen and guides in the effort to obtain data essential to management of the permit fishery.
