Dorsal Fin


The dorsal fin reaches up to the end of the first third of the caudal

fin with a rounded off end.


Evaluation of the length  


Up to the end of the first third of the caudal fin ………….……………..5 points

Up to the caudal fin beginning ……………………………..………..…...3 points

Less than up to the caudal fin beginning………………….………..1 to 2 points

Dorsal fin reaches beyond the first third of the caudal.…deduct up to 3 points


Examples of point deductions with formal defects


 Not rising steeply at the beginning ….….deduct up to 3 points

 Strong serrations or defects …………...deduct up to 2 points

 Deviation from the ideal form …………..deduct up to 7 points  


 The total of the points deducted shall not exceed 8.



The deduction for the same defect is only allowed once.



Caudal fin


The upper and lower edge of the caudal fin curves in such a way

that the largest width of the fin is reached with 3/4 of its length.  


The rear edge of the caudal fin is concave and the length of the

caudal amounts to 8/10 of the body length. It shall not be less than

5/10 of the body length.  


The width of the caudal fin amounts to 3/4 of the length.  


Evaluation of the length


 8/10 of the body length ………………………………....10 points

 7/10 of the body length ………………………………..….8 points

 6/10 of the body length ………………………………..….5 points

 5/10 of the body length ……………..………………….....2 points

 Less than 5/10 of the body length………………….…...no points

 More than 8/10 of the body length…..……..deduct up to 3 points


Examples of point deductions with formal defects


Fin height larger than 3/4 of the fin length ……..deduct up to 5 points

Fin height smaller than 3/4 of the fin length …...deduct up to 8 points

Rear edge not concave ………………………...deduct up to 10 points

Rear edge strong serrations or defects …….…deduct up to 5 points

Upper and lower edges not convex …………… deduct up to 10 points

Corners of upper and lower edges to rear edge too rounded off deduct up to 4 points

Upper and lower edges strong serrations or defects deduct up to 2 points



The total amount of points deducted must not exceed 20.
