The Tuna Club of Avalon

The Tuna Club of Avalon marks the birthplace of modern big game sportfishing. In 1898, led by Dr. Charles Frederick Holder, the club's founding members adopted the rules of conduct stressing conservationist ethics and sporting behavior. Today, their work remains the basis for the sport's internationally accepted principles.

Plaque placed by the State Department of Parks and Recreation in Cooperation with the Tuna Club of Avalon, June 8, 1991.
