The forecast is that the event gather 250 boats across the country and an audience of about 50000 people.
The core of Amateur fishery planning and Organization (NUPA), Ministry of fisheries and aquaculture (MPA), and the National Association of Ecology and sport fishing (ANEPE), from São Paulo, announced during the opening of the regular meeting of the National Council for aquaculture and fisheries (CONAPE), in Brasilia, a partnership to promote the 1st National sportfishing Tournament, from September 11:15 in Goiás. The tournament, in “catch and release”, will be the first of a series of five to be deployed in the country in the coming years, in order to create the basis for a national circuit of sport fishing.
The ultimate goal is the achievement of a national championship, along the lines of that occurs today with sports from other areas, said Lucas Lee, Coordinator of NUPA.
The tournament in Goiás, aimed only for fish species blue Peacock bass (Cichla piquiti) and yellow (Cichla kelberi), will have the backdrop of Serra da Mesa, in the upper Tocantins basin, whose waters form the largest hydroelectric reservoir in water volume from Brazil, with 54.4 billion m3.
The forecast is that the event, with entries from July on this website MPA and of ANEPE, will bring together 250 vessels from all over the country and will attract an audience of about 50000 people, with the support of city of Niquelândia, 229 km from Brasilia and 304 km from Goiânia.
The 1st National Sports Fishing Tournament will involve double work of fishermen, who must present in “checkpoints” five fish caught of greater length, kept alive in the boats. Only they will be scored. If some fish die accidentally in fishing, your donation to charity organizations. The ten doubles with highest score will receive trophies. All participants will receive prizes in raffle.
The event will have other attractions, apart from the competition. Technical workshops will be promoted to sport fishing and a food festival with tilapia fish-based dishes and tambaquis grown in the Serra da Mesa Lake. There will be workshops in aquaculture, given by SEBRAE, and navigation safety, by the Navy of Brazil. Also the program includes workshops, children’s fishing for children between seven and 11 years, public schools of Niquelândia and Uruaçu.
“The MPA understands that the tournaments can foster the entire production chain of sport fishing,” says Lucas Lee. For him, the Brazil has the greatest potential in the world. He remembers, for example, that the country enjoys lush ecosystems such as the Amazon and the Pantanal; and immense reservoirs as the Castanhão (EC) and the Serra da Mesa. On the Mainland, the attractions are species like the Peacock bass and bream. On the coast there are species of interest such as the fish mouth.
To your side, Marco Militelli, of ANEPE, entity that represents the sector on CONAPE, recalls that sport fishing already represents 7% of the GDP of Costa Rica and 1.5% of the GDP of the United States. In Brazil, the activity moves approximately 1.2 billion R$, but this amount has what it takes to grow much more in the coming years.
At the moment, the MPA accounts for 320,000 anglers entered in the RGP. According to Lucas, however, this number still does not reflect the popularity of fly fishing in the country, which involves milhões de brasileiros. However, only licensed fishermen will be able to participate in official tournaments.
