SELLING TUNAS
Atlantic tunas may be sold only by fishermen permitted in commercial Atlantic tunas categories and
only to federally-permitted dealers, with the exception of BAYS tunas landed by HMS Commercial
Caribbean Small Boat permit holders.
334 BAYS tunas landed by HMS Commercial Caribbean Small

Boat permit holders may be sold to dealers and non-dealers.
335 Dealers can obtain a tuna dealer permit

by contacting the Northeast Region Permit Office at (978) 281-9370.


law looks pretty clear.. you can only sell to federally permitted dealers....

My dad used to sell some but he was a full blown commercial fisherman. Saltwater products license, reef fish permit, restricted species endorsement, snapper IFQ, grouper IFQ, boat had a vessel monitoring system, and God knows whatever else confusing and horribly implemented federal licensing nightmares. He wasn't just some guy in a sport boat trying to sell a few fish.

American Seafood used to buy them but that was before Ivan blew it away. Pattis would buy them but they came in with a bunch of snapper and grouper that he was more interested in. He sold the most to Venice Seafood in Venice, LA. Back when the Japanese economy was bumping, they had people that would grade the fish at the dock. The fisherman were paid fairly well for high grade fish and the fish were flown to Japan to be sold by the gram I believe. I have no idea where the market for them is now but I guess you are finding out.

Well I got back yesterday. What a freaking blast! Caught 1280lbs of tuna. Me and one other guy. Only one was under 70lbs. I am a whooped individual and my buddy it was his first time ever in blue water. First 36hrs we didn't even see a fish. Moon wasn't right. Then we found out that some manheden we had was old. Then figured out the generator was putting off a shock in the water. It was like we were a fish deturent. Then when we got everything together it was game on. Saw a whale. Pulled a green stick I bought. Took a while to get tuned but it did OK. As far as selling it. Everyone was closed when I got in.. I'm going to get my permits and all to sell to the public Monday. I have all the stuff I need brothers that always want to be right. I'm very much on top of the rules and regs and I got every duck in a row. To all those who want fresh tuna on my next trip or Monday let me know I'll give you a deal. Any questions feel free to ask. I'll help anybody in the world. Thanks all who had good input and any other info would be appreciated. I don't know how to put up pictures yet. It asked for a URL. I've got some video too. Anyone that wants to be a deckhand let me know. I'll take you fishing!
