Default mass commercial lobster permit

Looking for an area 1 permit in Mass. Any help would be greatly appreciated! It seems like they are hard to find. I already qualify through the DMF. I'd also be interested in about 200 traps to fish next season.

Have you looked in the fishermans voice, commercial fisheries news, or the mass lobstermans association. I would check there to start. Or even downeast boat forum. Lots of commercial guys there.

Big Shrimpin, Those are federal permits I believe. There is area 1 federal and area 1 state of Mass.

Bluegrass, keep your eye out. One will pop up, you are looking in the right places.

Thanks for the help so far. Ideally I'm looking for someone that needs the cash in hand and not to deal with a broker. Especially before their license goes inactive.
