A Successful Inaugural Mahi Mayhem Tournament!

Categories: Latest News

The first weekend of May, 2017 marked the inaugural Mahi Mayhem fishing tournament in the British Virgin Islands and we’re incredibly proud of its success.

At CSF, one of our key initiatives is to support the local fishing communities in the territory. We do this by raising baby lobsters on land in a sustainable way, and now we’re working with multiple stakeholders to make the BVI a sportfishing destination!

We have agreed to a 5-year deal to sponsor the tournament, in conjunction with Nanny Cay Marina, BVI Tourist Board, the BVI Sportfishing Association and the Conservation and Fisheries Department.

We’re grateful with the amount of support we’ve received for spearheading this initiative and we want to send a huge thank-you out to our sponsors and everyone who participated in the tournament!

The CSF team is also exceptionally proud to announce the winners! Captain Alvin and his crew aboard the Emmanuel from St Thomas swept the board and took home $9,500 total in prize money! They scooped the $5,000 top prize for the heaviest Mahi at 33 pounds, $2,500 for the second heaviest mahi, $1,000 for heaviest overall catch, and $1,000 for heaviest mahi with an outboard engine.

Jack Cadman, the son of our chairman, Giles Cadman, was aboard the Venator and won the Heaviest Tuna award for his 65-pound yellowfin tuna! The impressive fish also won him the Star Angler award for the heaviest fish of the tournament.

The Heaviest Wahoo went to E&S Team Nanny Cay BVI with their 39-pounds catch. Eli James on 2 To Tango from St Thomas won heaviest kingfish with his 23-pounder. The Youngest Angler award was won by Max Reshetiloff, and Sue Durham was awarded Female Angler of the tournament!

Throughout the sunny afternoon, the CSF team gave talks to the children at the tournament throughout the day educating them on the oceans, currents, and how we are different than traditional lobster farms. Then, the kids set to work on building homes for a fun and education experience. It’s important to us at CSF to educate the next generation about sustainability and we’re excited to be industry leaders at the forefront.

All in all, it was a fantastic day of fishing, education, and tons of fun. If you’re interested in learning more, or investing in the future of our fishery, please contact us here.
