Commercial Lobster Dive Permit
The FWC Spiny Lobster Rule, 68B-24 limits commercial divers to harvest crawfish (spiny lobster) by diving from a vessel that has been issued an FWC Spiny Lobster Endorsement and Commercial Dive Permit (CD#).
Divers bringing commercial quantities of crawfish back from federal waters need the CD#
All vessels used for commercial harvest of spiny lobster by diving must be licensed with a vessel SPL, RS, C# and CD#. Dive vessels must be marked with divers-down symbols that are visible from the air and water with the CD# (displayed as the diver's C# followed by the letter "D") on the diagonal stripe of each symbol. Qualified divers may not put their CD# on more than one vessel and no more than one C# may be affixed to any vessel.
