What is a bonefish worth?

Here's an interesting article on the economics of Florida's bonefish resource.

Thanks for posting that. It is interesting, but as with all statistics, you have to wonder how accurate those numbers really are.

I know I'm worth about $12-13k+ annually to the Bahamas for bonefishing.

Thanks Jon - excellent reading. The price of an atlantic salmon in Gaspe or Scotland, or a steelhead in the pacific northwest or great lakes, or a striper on the eastern seaboard, largemouth bass in tournament country... are astronomical when you think of it, and the point about all anti-environmental bills coming from the current house speaks volumes.
