Good morning! Does anyone fish out of kayaks on the islands? Ive been a part of the cooperate shark tagging program for several years now and was wondering if anyone has the same passion as I! I catch, tag and release out of an ocean kayak! Its a great way to protect and study these animals! And lots of fun! What are you doing to protect our marine environment? Thank you! Pirate

Shiver me timbers!!!

You catch and release sharks from a kayak??!!:-o

You can check with Fish and Wildlife in Red Hook, 340-775-6762, as they have oversight in these sorts of activities. UVI students do a lot of conservation research. Currently, there is a lot of attention being paid to the St Thomas East End Reserve. You can see the plan at www.czm.dpnr.gov.vi under the publications tab.

EE - If he uses a two man kayak you could get a waterproof case for your iPhone, ride in back, and film the action. I'd pay to see the video, and especially to listen to the audio!
