that is kind of a broad question , there are just under 1300 total CFH permits in the gulf , i have seen the exact number , but don't have it in front of me , as far as " operate "

there is no way for anyone to know , many of those permits are latent , in other words are not attached to a boat that operating or actively fishing in the gulf , i personally know of several on bay boats just to keep the permit current , but haven't been on a boat that has actively fished offshore in years , one captain in PA that has one part time boat fishing , posseses several latent permits ,even know of one attached to a small jon boat ,

so as far as operating boats , its anyone's guess , mine would be maby 1/2 of them or a little better , and my guess means about as much as anyone's , absolutely nothing ,

not sure how current this list is , but maby this will help
