"You can get this item from seasonal events or campaigns."
I assume that everything you can see in the catalog will come back at some point. You can't find Mario fishes and Splatoon fishes from the catalog, so maybe those were a one time thing, but those haven't been added to VGR.
At the moment I have caught clown fish, barred knifejaw and surgeonfish again, but they are rare. So those have come back after the fishing tourney.

this 3 fishes you mentioned are now "normal" fishes like the first ones. I got them plenty of times too.
But every other Event fish is "gone" for now.
this are the fishes of the last Event (13) and it seems this was also the first time with that fishes.
-Killifish -Goldfish -Catfish -Pink Koi
I researched of what fishes was able to catch in Events, but right now it seems if a new Fish Event Comes out, then we get new fishes too. I think we should NOT add the Event fishes until we can be sure that they come back. Right now we have only the fishes from the first Event, but there are already 13! fishing Events out there they came out only once. Or did you find a Event was coming back with fishes we already got before?
The 3 fishes I mentioned still have this text in catalog: "You can get this item from seasonal events or campaigns." To me that sounds like you will be able to get them again.
What makes you think they are now "normal" fishes? We don't know if devs will keep them for good or replace them with other fishes that were in events before and start rotating them. Who knows. But the fact is that those 3 fishes from the first tourney have come back like this for now at least. And you were able to catch them. I think we just have to wait and see.
There have been 13 Fishing Tourneys so far yes, but not all of those fishes are in the catalog. Fishes from Tourney 6, 7, 8 and 12 are not in the catalog (and not in vgr) and most likely won't make a return.
