The species showdown is a new competition series with month long individual competitions targeting a specific species.
All fish captured during the nominated month are eligible for entry. This includes all fish caught during a personal recreational dive, a designated club dive, another Victorian Spearfishing Commission Club dive, or competition. It is a condition of entry that participants abide by these club rules and regulations of the competition.
Competitors need to sign up for each species. Entry for the event for that month must be in place by the 2nd Wednesday of the Month which is the club meeting date for that month. Unlike the species challenge, competitors are not limited to the number of entries for each competition.
Full list of rules and competition information can be found here and submissions can be made here
