The Bill Poole Memorial Angling Tournament was created to benefit Hubbs-SeaWorld Research Institute (HSWRI), a non-profit marine research Institute founded in 1963 to seek scientific solutions that protect and conserve marine animals while benefiting humans and their reliance on marine resources, including seafood. Since 1983 Hubbs aquaculture scientists have bred, raised, and released more than 1.8 million juvenile white seabass. Thanks in part to this extraordinary program, the white seabass, a popular recreational and commercial fishery, has staged a remarkable recovery. While many marine science programs deserve support, this one is virtually unique in that it actually returns fish to the sea
HSWRI’s stock replenishment program is an important tool for sustainable fisheries management and truly embodies its mission, “to return to the sea some measure of the benefits derived from it. The values HSWRI embodies earned the respect of the sportfishing pioneer and icon Bill Poole. After Bill’s passing in 2009, his wife Ingrid Poole eagerly joined with HSWRI to establish the Bill Poole Memorial Angling Tournament in support of this program.

Now in its third year, this popular tournament will feature a wide range of trophy categories. Special prizes will be given for any white seabass captured alive and donated to HSWRI's brood stock program. All white seabass heads will be scanned for tags as part of HSWRI’s program to identify hatchery-reared fish from wild individuals. This will, once again, be a family-oriented, non-money tournament designed to encourage sportsmanship and ocean awareness. All proceeds go directly to HSWRI white seabass replenishment program.
