The Jardines del Rey fishing tournament kicked off the celebration of the 15th anniversary of the Jardines del Rey tourist destination in Ciego de Avila Cuba this past week. Jardines del Rey is the area consisting of Cayo Coco and Cayo Guillermo on the north coast of Cuba.
The tournament consisted of eleven people in five teams representing Canada, UK and locals from Cayo Coco and Cayo Guillermo.
In three and a half days, five boats caught twenty nine fish including sixteen marlin and twelve dorado ranging in weight from thirty to fifty pounds.
The Cayo Coco fishing team won the tournament in points and received the prize for biggest fish.
Juan Miguel Romero Sanchez, commercial director of the Jardines del Rey Marina, said that the tournament was also designed to research the variety and amount of species in the Jardines del Rey area. The minimum requirements for keeping any fish was set at one meter.
Romero Sanchez announced that the Jardines del Rey fishing tournament will now be held every year in October.
