DO YOU HAVE WHAT IT TAKES TO COME THROUGH THE HURRICANE GATES OF NEW BEDFORD AND COMPETE AGAINST THE BEST BIG GAME FISHERMEN?

It is our distinct pleasure to introduce the upcoming premier shark tournament in 2016,

The North Atlantic  Monster Shark Tournament.  
The merger of two champion shark tournaments, The North Atlantic Shark Tournament and

The Monster Shark Tournament

is a result of the shared vision of both of the organizers of the two tournaments and the family of

Steven James.   
This entirely non-profit event will serve to promote the preservation of pelagic species and their ecosystems as well as to preserve the right to fish.  It will be held in America's top fishing port and the nation's capital for sustainable fishing, New Bedford, Massachusetts.  ALL the profits will be donated to causes and organizations that are committed to sustainable fishing and the preservation of marine ecosystems.
Join us in July of 2016 for a great tournament in a great fishing town for a great cause.

THE MERGER EVERYONE WANTED.

2016 DATES JULY 15& 16

Mission Statement:

Run a non-profit Shark Tournament for fishermen by fishermen focused on funding the education and science for sustainable fisheries management which will preserve the natural ecosystem on which all ocean life and future fishing generations can depend on.
