Get a Tarpon Tag

Reel In a Tarpon Tag and Help Keep Tampa Bay on the Road to Recovery!

Whether you are an avid fisherman in search of feisty snook, tarpon, or redfish, a kayaker who enjoys paddling through a maze of mangroves, or simply a landlubber who appreciates the fiery reflection of a sunset over the water, you can help support bay restoration efforts by purchasing a Tampa Bay Estuary specialty license plate. The specialty license plate depicts the unforgettable thrill of landing a majestic, silvery tarpon. Chosen as an emblem of Tampa Bay’s recovery, the Tampa Bay Estuary Tarpon Tag is a bargain at just $17 per year.

Revenues from the tag are returned to the local community in the form of Bay Mini-Grants to citizen groups, schools, and non-profit organizations. Projects funded through this program must be directly linked to the goals of the Tampa Bay Estuary Program’s Comprehensive Conservation and Management Plan. Since 2000, nearly $2 million have supported eligible habitat restoration, pollution prevention, and environmental education projects.
