Sale of Catch:

Our 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 TunaMany 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.
