Collection is still allowed but by regulation and inspection with a special permit

What exactly does that mean? The few collectors in Hawaii I know of have said they are done after yesterday's ruling.
Well, I just checked with someone from Pijac and apparently those permits will come to an end:

Anyone who takes marine life for commercial purposes must have a commercial marine license (CML) issued by the Department of Land and Natural Resources’ Division of Aquatic Resources (DAR). This requirement applies to all kinds of take of aquatic resources, including commercial aquarium collection
The Court’s ruling explains that none of the current CMLs may be used for commercial aquarium collection.
