Rules for the biggest catches of the year

1. State the type of weight used, and preferably use a weight approved for buying and selling. Not approved with bathing scales etc.

2. Dive location and date.

3. Weight must be given, preferably also length measurements.

4. Photo of UV hunter and fish in the same photo is an advantage, and in one of the photos the length of the fish must be clearly shown, e.g. with a flipper or measuring stick.

5. At least one witness for weighing.

6. Frivannsliv is free to approve the catch.

If the fish is larger than a registered Norwegian record and you want to have it registered there, the rules for the Record List must be followed. Read more about this here.
