The 14th edition of the popular annual tournament will take place between March 17-19 at Chaloem Phrakiat Rama 10 Park in Saphan Hin and aims to promote marine tourism while stimulating the local economy.

Organisers confirmed that details on categories and prize money will be disclosed in due course and closer to the event. The rize money on offer at last year’s event was over B120,000.

Proceeds from last year’s competition and an associated fish auction went towards supporting Phuket Municipality to purchase medical equipment and supplies, to help the handicapped, the elderly, the underprivileged and the Soi Dog Foundation.
