Notice to All SQAFCA Members

All scale-bearing fish not appearing on our list must measure at least 30cm.

A bag limit of 5 per species will apply to unlisted scale-bearing fish with a maximum of 20 in total allowed to be weighed in.

GARFISH will be measured from the tip of the upper jaw to the end of the tail.

WHIPTAIL will be measured to the end of the lower or shorter tail.

A maximum number of 102 points will be allowed on any single fish at all events.

Undersized fish will incur a penalty of 25 points each.

A competitor who presents a number of fish at the weigh-in which is in excess of the allowable number, will forfeit the largest of that species (being one, or more than one) and will incur a penalty of 25 points for each of the offending fish.
