Maine’s marine fishing industry now has the advantage of on-line service delivery.
Why spend the day traveling to the Department of Marine Resources office when you could be fishing? With this new electronic delivery service, 7,000 lobster and crab harvesters will have an alternate license renewal method available 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
The Department of Marine Resources, in partnership with InforME, Maine’s eGovernment portal, is pleased to offer Maine’s lobster and crab fishermen a convenient on-line service option called Maine Marine Licensing. The first on-line marine license renewal service will be open to lobster and crab harvesters. The new service will be available soon at www.MaineMarineLicensing.com for the 2004 renewal period.
The license renewal service is available to both commercial and non-commercial license holders. By inputting identifying information, such as name and social security number or date of birth, a license record is quickly retrieved and a payment screen provided. Credit card payment is accepted through secure socket layer, ensuring security and privacy of personal information. With instant access and payment, the renewal process is quick and easy!
Lobster and Crab Harvesting license holders are required to renew annually. This renewal service is only available to Maine residents. For more information regarding the Department of Marine Resources, please visit: http://www.maine.gov/dmr/
