Gene Cloud Spearfishing Tournament July 14th - Reef & Beach Clean Up Sept 8th/9th

2018 Gene Cloud Spearfishing Tournament Calcutta

Calcutta Regulations:


Calcutta scores will be determined by the total combined weight of the largest fish per species category per boat/team. 

Lionfish will not be weighed, rather a one (1) pound weight will be assigned to any and all lionfish harvested. 

Entry Fee

The entry fee for the Calcutta is $100 per boat (up to five shooters), which is due by the completion

 of the Captain’s Meeting on Friday, July 13th 2018 at the Tarpon Bay Restaurant and Marina . 

Pay Out

The total Calcutta funds will be split among the top three boats/teams with the pay-out ratios of 50%, 30%, & 10%, 

with the remaining 10% being donated directly to Suncoast Aqua Ventures.


When entering the Tournament Weigh-In Line, each Team Captain is responsible for informing the Weigh-In Officials of his/her team’s participation in the Calcutta and presenting a completed 2018 Gene Cloud Calcutta Form (fill out the Diver’s Names, Boat Name, and Team Captain). Similar to the tournament, each Calcutta participant must choose which fish to weigh prior to arriving at the Weigh-In Stage. Tournament Weigh-In Officials will not weigh fish individually, to determine for the participant, which fish is the largest. 


In the event of a tied overall score, the winning honors will be granted to the Calcutta team with the largest single weight fish. 

Any further requirements for the resolution of tied scores will be at the sole discretion of the Tournament Officers.
