I'm not up on the current NY regas, but I can tell you the way it used to be, up until last year. During the winter, the trip limit was high, somewhere around the 5-10 thousand pound mark. Then, as the fish moved in in May, the limit would be reduced, first usually to 300 pounds and then later to 100-50 pounds. The reason for this was to get the draggers off the fish and preserve, what was left of the NY commercial quota for the pin hookers.
I haven't heard that this has changed and I'd be willing to wager that right now the trip limits are in the thousands of pounds.
