MarlinAlbufeira again is the start point for this year’s international fishing competition taking place between September 16th and 23rd.

The 26th edition of the World Championship ‘Big Game Trolling’ is organised by the Portuguese Federation of Deep Sea Sport Fishing with the support of the Albufeira council.

The competition this year is between 23 teams of big game fishermen, a total of 150 rods, from 15 countries, including Slovenia, South Africa, Italy, Angola, Portugal, Spain, Austria, England, Switzerland, France, Brazil, Germany, Croatia, France and Mexico.

The fishing area runs from Tavira to Sagres and up to 55 nautical miles south of the Algarve coastline.

Only certain species of fish will be recognised in the competition, such as the Blue Marlin, Bigeye Tuna, Bluefin Tuna and Dorado. All fish will be returned to the sea after the catch has been recorded for verification.
