ATRO is associated with and myself, Captain Gary Giles.  The main project we are currently working on is tagging Tarpon with sonic tags, thus allowing the Tarpon to be tracked around the Indian River Lagoon (IRL). I am working with Dr. Jonathan Shenker Ph.D. Associate Professor of Marine Biology Department of Biological Sciences at the Florida Institute of Technology (FIT) in Melbourne, Fl.
I started a TARPON Tagging Program for FIT some years ago and have successfully tagged well over 400 tarpon in and around the IRL. I am excited to start this extensive research project with the goal being the Preservation of our Tarpon fishers. Thus, allowing all fishermen the ability to Find and Catch more Tarpon!  I will post more details on the project status shortly after my Meeting with Dr. Jon Shenker.  – Capt Gary Giles
