When you arrive on the day of the auction, we will ask for your ID and you be given a bidder number and bidder card. Listen to the auctioneer and raise your card to bid.
We've created a helpful guide that walks you through the process, see:
Essentially, you register each bag of fish online where you can list the species/quantity and upload a picture of the fish. Uploading a picture is optional, but experience tells us this will result in a higher price for your fish.The system even creates labels for you!
It is important to read the Auction Rules which tell you what you can and cannot sell.
