2014 Fort Lauderdale Billfish Tournament



Nova Southeastern University (NSU) is proud to present the 2014 Fort Lauderdale Billfish Tournament, in affiliation with the Marine Industries Association of South Florida (MIASF). This year's tournament builds on the rich tradition of the Fort Lauderdale Billfish Tournament and showcases our commitment preserving our seas. The Tournament begins with the Kick-off Party and Captain's Meeting on Thursday, February 27th, at our NSU Center of Excellence for Coral Reef Ecosystems Research. This will be followed on March 1st by the fishing tournament, weigh-in and an evening awards banquet at the Bahia Mar. The event promises to be a great time for a very important cause.

All event proceeds fund scholarships for students at NSU's Oceanographic Center for studies on fisheries, coral reefs, and the marine ecosystems at local, national, and international levels.

In our beautiful new NSU Center of Excellence for Coral Reef Ecosystems Research, the Oceanographic Center conducts strategic research on many important aspects of the marine sciences. Participants and sponsors of the Tournament event have generated scholarships to our Ph.D. students. Andrea Bernhard uses genetic tools for understanding stock structure of recreational and commercial fish species, including billfish, groupers, and sharks. Anastasios Stathakopoulous is investigating the response of southeast Florida coral reefs to global environmental change including sea level and climate. Andia Chaves-Fonegra is studying reproduction, genetics and ecology of sponges and their degradation from climate change. We will announce the new scholarship recipient at this year's Captain's party!
