Scale & Weighing
All contest submissions must be weighed on a certified scale. The scale used to weigh the fish must have been certified within the past 12 months of when the fish was weighed.
If the scale has not been certified within the past 12 months at the time of weighing, the scale can be checked and certified for accuracy as quickly as possible after the weighing.
The IGFA provides a scale certification service for current members. Scales with a maximum capacity of 45 kg (100 lb) and less can be sent to the IGFA, and certified for a fee of $40 USD.
The IGFA has official Weigh Stations around the world that offer a certified scale.
