    I saw this in the lastest edition of Flyfishing in Saltwaters Magazine. A bonefish was caught and tagged in Florida. One year later, it was caught again 150 miles away in the Bahamas! Pretty interesting stuff regarding fish migration.

    Thanks for sharing Stonefish. Dang, I wish I had had this article a few months ago when I was writing a paper on the subject!

    Cool info :thumb: fish migrations can be incredible- you guys may have heard about the migration of the white shark from Australia to S. Africa and back. I'm studying dogfish here in the NE Pacific, and few realize that the little guys are capable of long-distance journeys. Of about 70,000 dogfish tagged off BC, 30 were recaptured off Japan! That's over 7000 km...
