Do the commercials crabbers belong to an association? Anyone know what is involved in buying a crab business? Other than the equipment, what;s involved in getting the license? Thanks all, Chris.

Well, I'm here in Baltimore and my buddy's kid worked on  a crab boat last year ( he since has moved) I saw a 40' Baybuilt in the paper for 10k. I always wanted to try carabbing professionally.

The fishery is closed to new entrants in Virginia, now and likely for the next three years.  You can transfer under certain cercumstances, such as when someone is getting out of the business.  From time to time you see licenses for sale in the trading post and in the paper.  The following link on the VRMC web page that has contact info for individuals who want to sell crab licenses.  You can post your info there.

BTW you also have to have a commercial card.  The normal route is is to apply pay your $150 and wait two years for the card.

Oh and to answer your question about associations.  There are several watermen's associations in Virginia mostly they are regional in nature.  There is a list of the Virginia ones at:

it all depends where you are at some time you can buy a liscence from some one who is going out of business.  Personal i would never buy and pay alot of money for a boat and not get a lisence with it the going price for a lisence verys from area to area. you may want to look in maryland for a lisence before you buy the boat
