4. Fish must be placed on its side with tip of either the upper or lower jaw touching the end of the measure. It is allowed to place a hand or have someone hold the fish on the measure or use  cloth on the fish hold steady during photo, provided this does not obscure the fish significantly.  

5. The V of the tail should as close to the midline of the measure as possible, and measure must be flat 

6. Fish must be measured fresh and may not be significantly cut in a manner that alters the length. 

7. If above rules are not adhered to your fish may not be eligible, Furuno NZ and ENL reserve the right to disqualify any fish at their sole and absolute discretion for any reason whatsoever including but not limited to inadequate photography, suspected measure tampering and false date submissions.

How length is measured

Length will normally be measured to 0.5cm increments, except where we have two or more leading fish with the same length. The innermost point of the V must touch or exceed the line on the  to qualify for that 0.5cm increment. For example if your fish is just over 40cm but does not reach the 40.5cm mark then the length recorded will be 40.0cm. 
Please ensure your fish is placed so the tail is evenly spread and the middle of the tail is along the midline of the measure.
