Its a boat permit that stays with the boat and is good for all on board. You don't need individual permits.

Atlantic HMS Angling Permit (Recreational) Description All owners/operators of vessels fishing recreationally for and/or retaining regulated Atlantic Highly Migratory Species (Atlantic tunas, sharks, swordfish and billfish) in the Atlantic Ocean, including the Gulf of Mexico and Caribbean Sea, must obtain an Atlantic Highly Migratory Species (HMS) permit. Similar to Atlantic tunas permits, 2011 Atlantic HMS permits cost $20.00 and will be valid from the date of issuance through December 31, 2011.

I declare an exemption for YFT or Bluefin caught from any Kayak launched from shore (not applicable to motherships). If you get caught, I'll pay your fine!
