In an attempt to fill vital data gaps for certain species, Poseidon has hosted monthly online tournaments. Our goal is to reach out to the local fishing community who possess the experience and skills necessary to catch very small and very large samples which are more difficult for us to find.
Every month, the need for specific species and corresponding sizes may be different than others. Therefore, a new flyer will be posted as needed. You can find the current information below, or keep up with us on our Facebook page at “Poseidon Fisheries Research” (No New Tournaments)
