The Monster Shark Tournament has moved from Martha's Vineyard to Newport Rhode Island. Each year 100 million sharks are killed, by removing these apex predators we are causing major changes in the oceans ecosystems. This tournament calls for the largest individuals to be caught, with the most common species in this area being thresher, mako, and porbeagle sharks. All three sharks are classified as vulnerable; with your help we can stop this tournament from coming to Newport.
