Get Involved

The Tarpon Bonefish Center (TBC), located at the University of Miami’s Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric Science (RSMAS), is a global Center of Excellence in ecosystem based scientific research to better understand and sustain premier gamefish, reef-fish, prey species and habitats in the marine and estuarine ecosystems of the southeastern U.S., Gulf of Mexico, Caribbean Sea, and tropical Pacific Ocean.

Your generous fiscal contribution to TBC helps us achieve our mutual gamefish and reef fisheries sustainability goals by advancing a unique blend of scientific vision, cutting edge technologies and public-professional outreach. There are two ways for you to get involved through charitable contributions that support TBC’s efforts: (1) giving on-line; and, (2) giving by check.

Book A Guide

The TBC is a cooperative effort of scientists and top professional guides for the conservation and management of tarpon and bonefish. These guides have voluntarily given significant time and effort in support of this research project. Their dedication to the conservation of this resource should be applauded.
