The Commercial Fisheries Entry Commission (CFEC) has created a new online permit and vessel license renewal service now available to Alaska's fishing community.
Permit holders can renew permit and vessel licenses for the 2009 fishing season at CFEC's web site: www.cfec.state.ak.us.
The online renewal system is secure and easy to use. Within just a few weeks of the Nov. 24 start, more than 1,000 renewal transactions have been completed.
"We are very excited that the online service has proved to be so popular with residents and non-residents alike," said Yvonne Miller, CFEC licensing supervisor. "So far, Alaskans representing every region of the state have successfully used the online system."
In addition to direct access by personal computer, CFEC has also established online renewal kiosks at Alaska Department of Fish and Game (ADF&G) offices in Anchorage, Sitka, and Kodiak, where the visiting public can now renew permits and vessel licenses online.
"We plan to expand this service to other ADF&G offices in the near future," Miller said, "continuing our commitment to provide the best service possible to Alaska's commercial fishermen."
