[edit]At issue was a section of Florida law that says no one may operate a boat that charges customers a fee for the purpose of taking a saltwater fish for non-commercial purposes unless the operator has purchased a license for each vessel, which can run from $200 to $2,000 per year. The law mostly has been applied to fishing charterboats, not dive vessels.[/edit]

They dredged that one up again---there was already case law ruling against fmp/fwc. Dive boats take out passengers to dive not to fish and anybody taking fish were/are required to have a fishing license.
Dive boats were careful to point this out to their passengers.....Amen.
