Applications for commercial licenses have been closed for a number of years. As I've heard it, existing licenses cannot currently be sold. Some people are holding onto thier licenses hoping that they might be able to sell them in the future.
This year there are 212 lobster permits in the state. Each on costs $265 plus $125 per crewmember and is valid for an unlimited number of traps.
In 2002, commercial trappers took 670,000 pounds of lobster.
