Stewards of the Boca Grande Tarpon Fishery and proponents of ethical angling
The Save the Tarpon campaign and SaveTheTarpon.com were created through the collaboration and cooperation of those who advocate for ethical angling and promote the stewardship of the Boca Grande Pass Tarpon fishery. We believe in the use of responsible and environmentally sensitive fishing techniques to protect this historically and culturally significant fishery

We strongly oppose, and call for the immediate termination of, the Professional Tarpon Tournament Series (PTTS) in Boca Grande, Florida. Our opposition stems from the destructive, unethical fishing practices and unsportsmanlike conduct promoted by this for-profit fishing tournament and television show. The disruptive fishing methods endorsed by the PTTS and employed by it’s participants are causing the Tarpon to change their movement, feeding, and spawning behaviors. Behaviors which had, until now, been unchanged for thousands of years. The change in these patterns has already deteriorated the quality of the fishery.
We will work tirelessly to bring awareness to this important cause and to fight for the preservation and future health of the Boca Grande Pass Tarpon fishery.
Help us end the unnecessary destruction of this precious resource by a for-profit private entity. Join us and say “no” to the PTTS, it’s sponsors, affiliates and participants.
