Save the tarpon. It is a message created by Save the Tarpon, Inc., a not-for-profit organization created to advocate for ethical angling and promote the stewardship of the Boca Grande Pass tarpon fishery. In slightly over a year, the Boca Grande-based organization has gathered an impressive following, evident by its 13,000 Facebook followers.
More than 300 people showed their support for the organization on March 3 at the Louise duPont Crowninshield Community House on Boca Grande. The event was dubbed “Save the Tarpon Shindig” and included both silent and live auctions, informative lectures about the history of the Pass and the purpose of the organization. There was also food. Good food. From gumbo to fish stew, frog legs to hot dogs, everyone who showed up got a taste of some fine grub, and a taste of what Save the Tarpon is trying to achieve.
