Sale of Catch:
permits allow us to take our charter parties into areas closed to
commercial fishing and as a price for that advantage we are not allowed
to sell any fish we catch EXCEPT Giant Blue Fin Tuna. Many passengers are surprised to find
out that by law managed by the National
Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS) Highly Migratory Species (HMS) unit
located in Gloucester Massachusetts and the Massachusetts Division of
Marine Fisheries (DMF) in Boston, Blue Fin Tuna caught on board any commercial boat fishing in the general
commercial category (over 73") may only be retained by that commercial vessel/Captain for profit. The laws and
penalties are very strict on retention and sale of Atlantic Blue Fin
Tuna and this is an important part of how we make money as commercial
fisherman. If we land a saleable Blue Fin Tuna (currently over 73" CFL) we can share the
proceeds of that fish with the customer. If we catch a Giant Blue Fin Tuna you will have to make the choice
before we land, of getting your trip free, or a 30% cut of the profit after it's sold at auction (days later). We
are commercial fishing vessels NOAA/NMFS/HMS permitted and licensed commercial tuna fisherman and as such we obey all regulations.
