South Carolina's marine fisheries are very important to all of us, and SCDNR is working to improve the full spectrum of fisheries landings data that are essential in effectively managing the state's marine fishery resources. In order to better track tournament landings of fish, we are requesting that all tournaments complete and submit a Tournament Catch Form to the SCDNR Fisheries Statistics Section within 30 days of the completion of your scheduled tournament.
