Flip, unfortunately an HMS permit must be registered to the boat or vessel that the yellowfin is caught on in order to be harvest it. If a tuna is an incidental catch on a vessel or platform without an HMS permit, it must be released immediately.

That was my understanding also.  A local kayak guide recently posted pictures of a harvested yellow fin, which was confusing  as it seemed to go against the HMS  rules.  Thanks for your reply.
