Beau Yeiser and JJ Brodbeck, biologists with our Fisheries-Independent Monitoring (FIM) Program, hold a tagged cobia caught offshore of Stuart, FL.

Tracking the movements of cobia (Rachycentron canadum) will allows researchers to determine migration patterns and the geographical location of the biological Atlantic and Gulf stock boundary.
