Turneffe Atoll Conservation Update

At Anglers All we have a special love for the beautiful Turneffe Atoll in Belize. At least two times a year we host fishing trips to Turneffe Flats Lodge on the atoll. Turneffe has become one of our favorite travel destinations. It’s an idyllic location that is home to an impressive list of saltwater species. Our customers regularly catch bonefish, tarpon and permit, as well as jacks, triggerfish, barracuda, sharks and more.

If you’ve ever been to Turneffe, you’ll certainly understand our passion for this place and why we choose to return with customers each year. But like many coastal ecosystems, it is fragile and is threatened by habitat destruction and other challenges. For that reason, we’ve joined Turneffe Flats Lodge and others in supporting the Turneffe Atoll Trust, an organization dedicated to preserving and protecting the atoll and its valuable resources.

Corrine%27s Tarpon w-Mark-2455Turneffe Atoll is one of only a handful of coral atolls in the Caribbean and is the most biologically diverse. At 30 miles long and 10 miles across, it is home to more than 250 different species of fish. The Turneffe Atoll Trust has been responsible for legislation that now mandates catch-and-release fishing for bonefish, permit and tarpon. The organization has also helped sponsor important fisheries research and established a marine reserve on the atoll. Most recently, the organization has led the charge against illegal development practices.

TFlats%2716-91Turneffe Atoll Trust is largely supported by Turneffe Flats, their guests and companies like Hatch and Costa. If you’d like information on joining one of our upcoming trips to Turneffe Flats, give us a call at 303-794-1104. You can also visit our Travel Page for dates and information. Finally, be sure to check out the limited edition Turneffe Atoll Trust Reels from Hatch. A portion of the sale of each reel goes toward conservation efforts.
