No, there is no such thing as a "Red Snapper Endorsement". Federal NMFS Red Snapper permits, (200lb or 2000lb) are completely separate permits and are always sold separately. They have nothing whatsoever to do with a Federal Reef Fish permit!

didnt mean to sound stupid, but in my area most federal reef permits are sold along with the 200 pound snapper liscence for that price,or at least that was the case a few years ago when i was last looking.red snapper is the main target fish in my area and i didnt think you could fish for them without a frp.so to have a snapper liscence without a frp or vice versa in this area wouldnt do me much good.but perhaps my understanding is wrong.and perhaps prices have gone up.i didnt really think it would have a 2000# ticket for that price as last time i checked a frp with 2000# ticket was about $40,000.

anyway to make my inquiry a bit more clear for you do you have a red snapper liscence that could be sold along with the frp. and if so how much extra would it cost. i guess thats really all i wanted to know.
thanks.

I do have a 200lb Red Snapper permit but I do not want to sell it at this time. You can usually pick them up for around $4000 to $5000 though. However there is a high liklihood Red Snapper are going to go to IFQ's and all Red Snapper permits would expire forever at that time.

Sorry, I certainly was not trying to make you feel stupid about your question. The "permit" system used by the NMFS and the "RS license/endorsement" system used by the state of FLA. are often confused with one another. It is very confusing to most folks and I felt it necessary to clear it up for you so you knew exactly what I had for sale and you knew exactly what you would get for your $$$.

it's cool i appreaciate your making sure to be clear,on that note are there any other specific reef species that are not covered my the federal reef permit?in general in my area the target commercial fish would be vermillion snapper,trigger fish,and grouper,with a few porgy and whatnot mixed in for good measure, also amberjack.
i guess i ought to head over to the nmfs site for a look ,lol.
anyway i may still be interested but it would probably be sept before i had the funds available.

All the fish you mentioned would be covered under a Reef Fish permit. However, I think this permit is sold.

That would be a lot of information. My best advice would be....if you are under funded......you are in for a tough battle in the fishing business. It can be very expensive to get started and even more expensive to stay in it if things start breaking and the weather gets bad. Think real hard before you get in!

i was only considering it as a part time job, if at all possible, to make a little extra cash. i was wanting to find out all the in's and outs before i jumped to any conclusions. i wasnt totaly sure if you had to make it a full time job to make any money, or for one to be able to get the permits that are needed.
