I plan on applying for an individual SPL and was wondering what is the clear cut way to fish and sell pompano commercially. Land ONLY (no boat/vessel)
From the research I've done on the FWC website and a reply from their customer service. It's an SPL license WITH the added endorsement. And the endorsement requires $5k sales of NON rs fish right?
THEN, FWC customer service mentioned "or work with someone and have them write you a crewshare statement to cover the $5,000 qualification requirement," which leads to my main question.
How does crewshare work?
When I read about "crew shares," it's mostly related to working on commercial boats. Is this the only way when taking this route, working on a commercial boat? Or do fish markets have a way to offer it too?
and when you do have your SPL with endorsement, is there a minimum of sales required when renewing?
Having a commercial license and endorsement for pompano isn't a must for me. Sometimes I get lazy after a trip and wish I could sell em, but I know there's regulations to follow. I tried searching for these answers, but couldn't find it as a whole. Sorry if this is redundant, but if not, hopefully this thread can sum it up.
