Ecology Award Point Values

Ecology Award


Release entry cards are available at all official weighing stations and at Tournament Headquarters. Ecology entry cards may also be submitted online. Recognition is given at the end of the tournament to male, female, youth, and boat category winners. Ecology Certificates will be presented to anglers with 100 or more points. Fish must be alive and in good condition when released. A release occurs when the hook is physically removed or wire is cut by the angler or mate. Any catch and release points earned on a licensed charter boat will go towards the charter boat’s total points. They cannot be credited to an individual. View Ecology Award point values here.
