Based on my crude understanding of Noether's Theorem, for each symmetry in physics, there is a conserved quantity associated with it. If so, what is the conserved quantity associated with permutation symmetry?

Noether's theorem only gives conserved quantities for continuous symmetries, like rotation, not discrete rotations like permutations. See the question and answers here: Conserved quantity corresponding to reflection symmetry
