Furuno Snapper World Cup Has a New Home for 2019


Barry 2019-03-08

With an increased focus on sustainable fishing, the Furuno Snapper World Cup will have new homes in 2019. 

The Furuno Snapper World Cup spawned from the legendary 'Furuno' tournament of years gone by. In the past, the cup has been run over a series of fishing tournaments around New Zealand and is awarded to the angler who catches the biggest Snapper over the series.

More recently it has been aligned with the Beach & Boat Tournament, but with that relationship coming to an end, the cup will have a new home and new format in 2019.

"ENL and Furuno are pleased to be involved in some tournaments around the country in conjunction with many of our dealers, and ultimately being able to award the Furuno Snapper World Cup trophy to one angler at the end of the season," ENL Group Managing Director Gareth Hodson.

For 2019, the Snapper World Cup will be up for grabs at the Stabicraft Trailerboat Tournament at the Mercury Bay Gamefishing Club - March 7-9.

And the ITM Trade Club Fishing Competition at Whangaroa - 21-23 March.

 "We will be looking to adopt a length measurement system for future fishing tournaments, utilising digital recording - meaning that more fish will be released back into the ocean."
