The tournament is run under the auspices of the Sir Henry Morgan Angling Association Limited and directed by Dr. Ron DuQuesnay.

DuQuesnay also promises that an electrical system upgrade is expected to be completed in advance of the tournament. The upgrade is being done in close cooperation with the Port Authority of Jamaica which owns the property.
