1. Setting the trap limit to 300 traps per permit with the ability to purchase a second permit for a maximum 600 traps. (This is not a radical change and seems fairly practical. It seems they think there is just a little too much fishing pressure due to increased commercial efficiency.)
This is in fact a big change. Currently there is no limit on the number of traps. Also over time this will decrease the number of permits because when a lobsterman buys a second permit to increase his number of traps, that permit can no longer be resold. Over time this will decrease the number of permits.
A correct assumption.
The primary problem with commercial selling of recreational catch has been with hoop netters. Although in the past divers have been nailed for this.
