The BCC will soon introduce a new standard for fish weighed at sea for all
entries submitted to the BCC.
This standard will stop any future controversy over a fishes estimated weight.
The standard has yet to be finalised by the BCC COMMITTEE.
Unfortunately there was recently a controversy over the weight for a conger eel
weighed at sea. The BCC do not want to get involved in any further issues on
estimated weights so we have decided to tighten up requirements for fish weighed
at sea. (*WAS)
The proposal is as follows :-
1. Picture of the eel showing the length with tape measure.
2. Girth measurement for and aft of the dorsal fin with tape measure.
3. Current Weighing scale Certification particulars.
4. Scale can only be of the type of one revolution for all weights. ie. Cannot
do two revolutions to weigh a higher weight.
5. Weighed in a sling or similar.
6. Signed copy of the weight entered by Boat Skipper.
Whilst this may seem heavy handed it will eliminate any future issues that we
CONGER DATA TABLE
Our Conger Data Table is gradually being uploaded
thanks to the dedication of a few people. Id is difficult to comprehend given
that most anglers now conform to CATCH & RELEASE that we have not had more
So if you want to know the
weight of that Conger Eel based on length alone our table when completed will be
able to give you that Estimated Weight.
However that idea seems a long way off given the lack of entries.
I have to thank Charter Skipper Kevin McKie of "SIZE MATTERS" for supporting our
entries and BCC Secretary Nigel McLoughlin. .
