Texas Shark Rodeo (TSR) is a catch - photo - release team oriented shark fishing tournament with an emphasis on tagging and collecting data for the conservation of sharks. This tournament is brought to you by Sharkathon with help from various sponsors as we secure donations.
TSR is in partnership with Texas A&M Harte Research Institute (HRI). TSR will be issuing tags and fin/clip vials for participants to help further shark research. Data will be collected via the TSR website during the competition.
This event is a "Leave no trace" event and we greatly encourage all participants to not only clean up after themselves when fishing but do what they can to leave the area they fished cleaner than when they arrived.
