Catching for Science
Our cobia fishery is in a state of turmoil. There are many questions as to how to manage the fishery, the health of the cobia stock, just what is the cobia stock (one big group, two big groups, or multiple cobia stocks?), how many fish can be caught while maintaining a healthy stock, and the accuracy of estimates of how many cobia anglers are actually catching.
To help find answers to some of these questions, the “Flounder Bowl” has become the “Cobia Bowl” to raise funds for cobia research at the Virginia Institute of Marine Science
