The team at FilmFish Australia have made the tough decision to pause the family online fishing comp until 1st July 2022. 

The last 18 months have been extremely tough for a lot of small businesses and FilmFish has been no exception. The revenue from our Reef Science Tank Shows used to fund FilmFish has been almost non-existent for almost two years.

With public events slowly returning to normal, we expect the Reef Science Show to be fully back on the road again by mid 2022. 

We cannot thank our FilmFish Members enough for their support and dedication over the last 8 months. Our members have caught over 2600+ fish and submitted via the SCF app making a huge impact on the amount of Citizen Science data collected to help us better understand the health of fish and our waterways. 

All current FilmFish Members will have a credit applied to their account until we restart on 1st July 2022. Current members are also encouraged to keep submitting fish over the next six months for Citizen science. The scoreboards will still be live and updated monthly. 

We look forward to connecting with you again on 1st July 2022, when we are back bigger and better than ever!

Our competition is run utilising the SCF research and events smartphone app which collects valuable data on all fish submitted. Each individual photo is analysed for fish health issues such as cloudy eye, skin defects, previous injuries, parasites. Over the past three years SCF has become the largest Citizen Science collector for recreational fishing and with your help will continue to have the most accurate understanding of waterways across Australia. 

Your fishing locations are will never be accessed by FilmFish or SCF and will only be used to provide heat map data to relevant government and environmental bodies.
