It’s time to gear up for the TTGFA Marlin Madness Tournament out of Pigeon Point, Tobago. The tournament will take place April 18th to the 21st, 2012. The winner of this tournament will receive TT$1,000,000 and an invitation to the 2013 IGFA Offshore Championship in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico. With the other prizes up for grabs, the turnout is sure to be outstanding.
This tournament not only earns money for the small island of Tobago, but is also a poster tournament for conservation thanks to the hard work of the Trinidad & Tobago Game Fish Association.
The principle objectives for which the Association is formed are to encourage the development of fishing as a sport; to assist in the conservation of marine resources, to co-operate with other organizations with similar objectives; to assist in the dissemination of knowledge in marine and fishing matters; to promote; legislation for conservation of piscatorial and other maritime affairs and to promote all such causes as are incidental or conducive to the above.
