Using Perl to write a specific script to handle CSV data

I'm kinda brand new to perl (well, programming in general), and so I'm trying to write a script which can automate work I manually perform on a day-to-day basis.

I've attached an overview of what I'm trying to achieve as a text file (species-script-overview.txt).
I've tried to put as much detail as I can into this text file detailing what i'm trying to achieve out of my script.

20130730-p12-A7.csv is an example CSV datafile I've attached which would contain the raw data used by the script.
SpeciesId.txt will also be used by the script to match scores against the .csv file and to assign Species depending on match scores and %.

I hope "species-script-overview.txt" makes sense... any help or assistance with writing such a script would be greatly appreciated.
