New Specimen Sizes 2022

The SWFSA have amended/added to following specimen sizes (all in lbs);

			Wreck	Reef	Shore
Bream (Couches)		3.5	2.25
Dab			1	1	1
Gurnard (Grey)			1	1
Mullet (Thin Lip)			3.5	3.5
Plaice					2.75
Pollack			15
Smoothound (all)			9
Tope				35



Tope

If you catch a Tope from the boat (or shore) please can you measure (in inches preferably) the length from the tip of the snout to the tip of the tail and can you also record the girth at the widest point (usually in front of the dorsal fin). If possible can you get an approximate weight on the boat/shore so that I, the fish recorder, can compare some Tope formulas.



Smoothounds & Bass

Specimen points will be awarded for all measured fish (tip of snout to tip of tail) 

THIS ALSO APPLIES TO FISH WEIGHED ON CERTIFIED SCALES AND RELEASED, PLEASE RECORD LENGTH OF SMOOTHOUNDS/BASS, THIS WILL THEN BE USED FOR MERIT POINTS AND NOT THE ACTUAL WEIGHT!
