We the Manatee-Sarasota Building Industry Association (MSBIA) and our fishing tournament Sarasota Slam, has been implicated by association with a now infamous video of 3 young men dragging a shark by boat. The video tape footage revealed one of the men in the video was wearing one of our fishing shirts, they are not a member of the MSBIA. We are making this statement because our association has been under attack via social media, emails and phone calls from the public and from media outlets, both local and beyond. We want the public to know that the MSBIA does not stand for nor condones this type of behavior and has been swift in its actions in banning these young men from participating in the Sarasota Slam. We are providing information to the Florida State Fish and Wildlife Commission (FWC), and cooperating with their investigation. We will be not providing any names, or any other information, except to the appropriate authorities. We take pride that our tournament is safe and family friendly, donates a portion of proceeds to charity, and follows all NOAA and Billfish Foundation rules and regulations. We expect all anglers in the tournament to also comply with FWC Commission rules and regulations.
