 Species hunt - basic rules

The aim for each angler to catch as many species as possible over the course of the period of the main competition.

Species Hunt Time Period


The MMBFC Species Hunt will run from the 1st January to the 31 December.

Species Hunt Regions

The Species Hunt will take place within the immediate waters of UK. Species caught outside UK will NOT count.

Where you can fish

Only fish caught within tidal, saltwater areas can be entered into the species hunt. This includes the open sea and estuaries and any other saltwater water body that is subject to tidal movements. The Hunt excludes species caught in rock pools.
 
Species Hunt Split

The species hunt is split into a Shore Species Hunt and a Boat Species Hunt. Although for the purposes of the award you can combine your shore and boat fishing totals together to get the overall number of individual species. There will be a league table for both Shore and Boat fishing species hunts for the purpose of fun and interest rather than competition.

Rules

Each species counts as one entry. Only one of a species can be counted each year to reach your total overall species count during the time frame of the competition.Only species that have been photographed against the appropriate card can be entered. Photographs should clearly show the distinguishing features of the species in question for ID purposes.Only fish species caught by method of rod and line are to be counted. Fish caught by other means are not eligible for this species hunt. Any tactics, baits or lures may be used.Foul hooked fish will not count.
 
Entry Updates

We expect all entrants to keep their species lists up to date over the year. We require that as you catch a new species you add them to your list along with a photograph. We will not be running any competitions based on fish sizes so there is no reason that species cannot be entered as they are caught.
 
Photos of the species caught can be viewed in the Gallery.
