Fish at the scale of the Tuna Tournament, 1958

Description

Image of fish at the scale of the Tuna Tournament, 1958.

The annual Rhode Island Tuna Tournament, incorporated in 1958, became one of the world's largest such events in the late 1960s and early 1970s. It continues today, but with a 50 percent drop in participation from its heyday due to a reduction in the numbers of tuna to be found off the Rhode Island coast.
