Don’t remove the tag. If the tag is covered in algae, remove algae before photographing.

Photograph the fish for verification

There are three key photos required:

Fish on blue background

Photo one must clearly display the front of the fish.

Fish on blue background with ruler

Photo two must be taken of the fish on a fish mat, or alongside a ruler or tape measure to clearly display the length of the fish. The fish must be laid out in a manner to clearly display the fish tag.

Fish with red tag

Photo three is a close-up photo of the tag to verify the tag number.

Do not remove the fish tag - you could lose your prize!

CALL 1800 077 001

Once this is done, call 1800 077 001 and quote the unique code on the tag for further instructions on how to register the claim. Please keep in mind that your catch is still confidential and that contacting media may result in your prize money being forfeited.

Verify your tag

The tag will need to be validated by a RFID reader in person, followed by media opportunities.
