In 2017 there are fishing categories for Junior and Senior fishers, a Senior-only Diving category, and a Junior-only Sprat category.  To enter a fish into a category you must hold an appropriate ticket: a Junior ticket for all Junior categories, a Senior ticket for Senior categories.

Each fish can be entered into one category only.
