The Fishing Committee proposes a point’s cap of 1,250 points plus the fish weight shall apply to all shark captures. (1 point per kilo of fish weight). The normal points scoring formula still applies, up to where a shark scores more than 1250pts it will be capped at 1250 points plus the fish weight. Eg 65kg Blue Shark caught on 4kg line, = 65 x 100 = 6500 divided by the lineweight (4) = 1625 This fish will have a reduced score of a maximum 1250 points plus 65 = 1315pts
Proposed new Tagging Points for Nationals
Blue & Black Marlin 600 points,Broadbill & Striped Marlin 450 points, Bluefin & Bigeye Tuna 225 points, Yellowfin Tuna 100 points, Spearfish 100 points, Shark 100 points, Yellowtail 25 points.
600pts = 222kg fish caught on 37kg line
450pts = 166.5kg fish caught on 37kg line
225pts = 83.3kg fish caught on 37kg line
100pts = Fish equalling line weight
