Ummmmm, well maybe. Most commercial boats have a method for keeping fish cold and liability insurance, etc. Sanitation does count.
There are guys who have loved it so much they have gone out and gotten commercial boats, licenses, mechanisms to handle commercial quantities of product safely, etc. and sell their goods. It is a premium product, I believe, because of how they have learned to handle it sport fishing. They are the group that have taken it to the next level. It isn't that hard to get a commercial tuna license. If you want to support your habit by selling your goods, then get a license.
Scromboid poisoning is real and there are standards for handling tuna that you may not get when you buy from the guy at the boat launch or his back yard.
Just click through some of the links to be a legal commercial fisher. https://wdfw.wa.gov/fishing/commercial/tuna#
Didn't read through this but there's also the safety requirements to be a commercial fisher. Fairly certain you need a life raft, not sure about survival suits off the west coast. We're required to have them in AK. Et cetera, et cetera. http://fishsafewest.info/Regs.asp
More to it requirement wise than just going out and catching a few too many.
Really didn’t think that post all the way through. I’ve always thought they need to give tickets for being stupid. Guess I deserve one for 11 over speed limit. Had a friend a few years back that was more addicted to the tuna game than actually eating or canning it. In reality 2 or 3 fish canned a year covers my needs not sure what I’d do with more than that.
It's fuggin' insane to suggest that sport fishers should be allowed to sell fish. That's how numerous species of various fish , animals, plants go down the crapper. Commercial fishers at least have to jump through some hoops to avoid over fishing and health related concerns.
