South Commercial Fishing Permits for the Gulf of Mexico and the Caribbean

south commercial fishing permits

Commercial fishing in southern waters – that’s more than a job, it’s a career and a future. With so many different species to fish in southern waters at different times of the year, an entire commercial fishing business can be powered simply by that alone. However, to do so, you have to be in compliance with the rules and regulations. That’s where our Commercial Fishing Permits Center comes in. We have all kinds of south commercial fishing permits that allow you to fish the species you want in the Caribbean, Gulf of Mexico, and more. 

South Commercial Fishing Permits

You may know them as the “rock lobster,” “Florida lobster,” or even “crawfish,” but the spiny lobster can be great for your commercial fishing operation. As of this writing, at recommended levels in the southeast, these lobsters tend to be harvested for their “tail meat.” So, if someone orders “lobster tail,” this is often where it comes from. These are a great option for fishing in the winter, as the fishing season on these lobsters is closed from April 1st through August 5th. That way, the lobsters’ peak spawning season is protected. At our site, we can help you to get a new permit for fishing them or to renew the one you already have. 

King Mackerel Fishing 

As you may know, before the 80s, King Mackerel fisheries were, more or less, unregulated. So, they got quite depleted. Fortunately, they’ve bounced back so strongly that according to the last stock assessment, they are neither overfished nor subject to overfishing. That means you can fish for these when you would like. Now, there are seasonal and fishing trip limits, and there is a minimum size limit in place, but you can fish these when you’d like. While seasons and areas do close easily should the quotas be reached, for the most part, you can get out there and be “the king” of fishing for King Mackerel. At our site, you can transfer permits or renew them.
