New Bedfords North Atlantic Shark Tournament is set for July 18 & 19, this time starting at Pier 3 in New Bedford.

 The idea for this tournament came from the fishing community who lost the man who fought for fishermen's rights Steve James.  Steve fought tirelessly to protect the rights of fishermen and the new tournament looks to continue his efforts. The tournament is put on by fishermen focusing on funding the education and science for sustainable fisheries management preserving the ecosystem which all ocean life and future fishing generations can depend on.  For more info on the New Bedford North Atlantic Shark Tournament click here.  New Bedfords North Atlantic Shark Tournament
