How would I go about looking up the history of a GOM Reef Permit? I want to see when the last time was it was reported on and how much activity it has had over the past several years and make sure it's clean. If I end up purchasing this permit, what is the process for transferring it to myself? I can't seem to find any transfer of ownership forms on the NMFS website.

Thanks,

Bob

What type of permit. If it is a reef fish or migratory palegic there is no history that i know of. You can find out who has them and what their address is.

It is just a reef permit, and the price is too good to be true. That's why I want to check it out before money trades hands. So if I confirm that the permit is his and is ok, what's the process for transferring the permit to me?

Call the# I listed above on Monday, you will need the permit number(s), and ask them if it is a valid/transferable permit. If so, the owner will transfer them into your name ($35 I think) and then sell them to you. I have a permit broker that I deal with just to make sure everything is on the level. So how much??????

I'm confused. These links may it appear you can obtain a permit just by applying. I was under the impression there was a moratorium on permit issues, hence the high private market price. What's the story?:doh

You can apply all day long, they own't grant you one though. There is a moratorium as you said on reef permits.

This is just a reef permit from a guy who hasn't fished in quite some time and doesn't own a boat anymore. It's the cheapest permit I've ever come across. Let's just say it's costing me less than filling up the boat. Needless to say, I'm all over it! Is there a form that has to be filled out and mailed as well?

On the back of the permit there are instructions about transfer of ownership.

ADRENALINE, i am not sure if i want to sell them or not. I have not run a charter in federal waters in about 3 years. I don't need the permits to run cobia charters and that is all i have run in the past 3 years. Another person on the forum showed interest in leasing them. I am not sure how that works as i have not checked up on it yet.
