The NJ rec license for pots is just $2 and allows you to crab 2 pots.  You need to mark the buoys with your license number.  Go to the NJ DNR web page.  You can buy and print the license online.

Hey Mark, here is the link,  print it, fill out the form, both pages all the way through, even the end part about child support.  If you don't they will send it back.  It's a $2.00 check for a 2 pot license.  You can also use (2) 150 foot trotlines with it.

Talk to you soon buddy.

P.S. - If you have the extra cash throw in a clamming license too.  It doesn't hurt to have in case you want to head out for some Sehllfish  Grin

Hello everyone ... Mike here from Ocean County. I'm looking to see if it's feesible to crab from the shore and be able to make a few dollars selling to fish markets. I'm an unemployed union construction worker out of an Atlantic City local and we have absolutely no work , and now my unemployment benefits have run out and times are real tough .. I have a wife and 5 yr old daughter at home and our house is in foreclosure now , have applied for many jobs and things are just really bad out there. I don't even have a boat.
Back in the mid-80's I used to clam the shrewsbury and navasink rivers when they first opened them back up , it was part of the "Relay Program", where you clam all day, unload the boat , drive the truck full of clams from Atlantic Highlands down to Brick at the Mantaloking bridge , unload the clams from the truck and into the boat at that marina , and take them out to the specified spot and dump the clams overboard.
They needed time to clean themselves out and then you could come back and re-harvest them at a later date , a lot of freakin work ! We had a few accounts at some resturants locally , and some we had to drive out to north philly to sell to seafood markets ... and we'd buy the clams right off some of the other clammers on the rivers too.

So here I am, over 20 years later considering trying to make a buck by crabbing from the shore, lol ...
Is it even possible ??  what kind of chance do I have of catching any numbers ?
My other question is about licensing, how does it work for what i'm trying to do? and how hard is it to get a commercial license right now? Any help is greatly appreciated.

You can't make any money crabbing from the shore, even if you could acquire a commercial crabbing license in NJ.

i don't think you can get a commercial license.  the state only alows so many and they're all taken up. you'd probably have to buy one off of someone that has one if you could find that someone, and that would be way expensive.  don't get caught selling crabs without one either, again way expensive
