While targeting billfish is the focus of the TCBT, the tournament includes Fun Fish Division awards for tuna, dolphin and wahoo. The Fun Fish Division offers an optional payout rivaling top prizes of U.S. based tournaments. In addition to the cash prizes, winners receive beautiful trophies and the top team is honored on a statuesque Perpetual Trophy showcased in the resort's Spinnaker Restaurant, one of the largest air conditioned out-island restaurant facilities available for events. Awards are also presented to Top Lady and Junior Anglers.
Release point standings are verified by the participant's own digital and/or video camera with an image that can verify the time and date the photo was taken. The TCBT is open to the public and center console boats over 30 feet are welcome.
The top TCBT team will qualify for the IGFA Offshore World Championship, with information available at www.igfaoffshorechampionship.com.
In addition to its great food and family social events, the TCBT also raises funds for the children of the Treasure Cay Primary School.

Dinner with Sir Sidney Poitier: Remarks by Bahamas Deputy Prime Minister

Los Angeles, Calif.

-

Tuesday August

Every Bahamian
grows up knowing of Sidney Poitier.

Every Bahamian
knows the greatness of the man, achieved over an extraordinary lifetime.

And Americans
and Bahamians can agree: Sidney Poitier is one of a kind.

a beautiful, hilly island in the central Bahamas. I have the honour to
represent Cat Island in our National Parliament. His Excellency, Sir Sidney
Poitier grew up on Cat Island working on a farm -- fishing and swimming in
clear calm waters while attending school.

Chef Tim explains The Flying Fish Restaurant Philosophy

There seems to be a lot
of chatter on the internet these days about restaurants and service.
 There also is a long discussion recently about Flying Fish.  It seems
like there are a lot of misunderstandings about what we do, and want to
do, at Flying Fish Restaurant.  I would like to take a moment to try and shed some
light on our thoughts for the restaurant.  

From the
inception of the concept of Flying Fish my goal was to create a place
that had quality and luxury never before attempted on Grand Bahama.
 Lots of people said we should do it in Nassau; that's where all the
people are.  Many said you should do it in Abaco; that's where all the
big wallets are...

Delegation to visit Dominican Republic to address illegal poaching

A delegation of government officials will visit the Dominican Republic at the end of the month in an effort to curb the presence of illegal Dominican poachers in The Bahamas, but if that fails the government is prepared to implement more stringent measures to keep them out of Bahamian waters, said Minister of Immigration and Foreign Affairs Fred Mitchell.
In an interview with The Nassau Guardian Mitchell said there have been far too many complaints made by Bahamian fisherman about illegal poaching.
"The Dominican Republic does not have a bank, The Bahamas is mainly [made up of] banks and shallow water, the conch and crawfish live on the banks and their nurseries are in the banks, so the question is where does the Dominican Republic get such an extensive fishery," Mitchell said.
"Our information is there are large commercial operations out of the north of the Dominican Republic and they really fund these exercises.
"We want the cooperation of the Dominican government to bring this to a quick halt, to let them know that we are quite serious about his matter."
He said if that doesn't work, more stringent measures will be taken by the Royal Bahamas Defence Force, and stronger legislative measures will be taken by the government to control the amount of poachers in Bahamian waters.
Mitchell noted that poaching poses a serious problem to the sustainability of fishing in The Bahamas.
"You must reap the fish by a method that is sustainable," he said.
"The problem we have is twofold. First of all the waters belong to The Bahamas, not the Dominican fisherman.
"Secondly the methods that are being used are in fact unsustainable and they wipe out so much of the species which are in the water, which makes the long-term prospects of recovery more difficult for all of the various species, and this includes conch and crawfish in particular."
