Russia's National Monitoring Centre for Fisheries and Communication will demonstrate modern technologies used in the sphere of fishing control at the International Seafood Exhibition Expofish 2011 to be held on 25-27 May, 2011 in Moscow, according to Russian Fish Insider Report published by http://www.megafishnet.com/.

More specifically, at its stand the Centre will exhibit a new subsystem "Permits", which will automate the process of allocation of fishing permits and will collect the information distributed from different territorial bodies of Russia's Federal Fisheries Agency to one network.

According to the Centre's Head Mr. Maxim Sanko, in the future the use of electronic technologies will speed up the process of fishing permits issue because all the data will be kept electronically in the central base.

This will allow the fishermen to get licenses from their working place using the technology of "electronic logbook" and the document signed with electronic signatures will have the same power as its printed copy.
