Florida researchers offering $50 to fishermen who catch this species of fish

Researchers with the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) is asking local fishermen for help.

The organization is offering a bounty of $50 to anyone who harvests cobia fish in the month of September, the FWC shared on its website.

If you catch a cobia fish and meet with a biologist, you are entitled to a share of the winnings.

If a fisherman were to harvest a previously tagged cobia, they are to return the acoustic transmitter and plastic dart tags to the FWC in Tequesta, the FWC noted.

The $50 bounty will last from March to September 2023/2024.
