I believe that there is a minumum fine called out in the regs, but it usually comes down to the specific violation and the judge handling the case.
The last one I was aware of was fairly egregious - the diver had a license and had been cited for 15-16 bugs. I believe the penalty was $500 for the violation (over limit) and $500 for each lobster over limit $4,000 -$4,500, and confiscation of his gear, probably another few thousand.
And this guy had his license...
Pretty expensive dinner.
Stay wet, stay legal.
