Fisheries Licence

Kwa mujibu wa Sheria ya Uvuvi Na. 22 ya Mwaka 2003 na Kanuni za Mwaka 2009, utoaji wa leseni za uvuvi chini ya mita 11 hutolewa na Halmashauri husika na vyombo vinavyozidi mita 11 hutolewa na Wizara. Leseni hii hutumika kuanzia Januari hadi Desemba. Aidha, Halmashauri ndizo zinazohusika na usajili wa vyombo vyote vinavyoruhusiwa kuvua ikiwa moja ya vyanzo vyake vya mapato. Ukaguzi na utoaji wa Cheti cha Usalama wa Chombo (Seaworthness Certificate) ni jukumu la Mamlaka ya Usalama wa Vyombo vya Usafiri na Nchi Kavu na kwenye Maji (SUMATRA) chini ya Wizara ya Uchukuzi.

Ili kuondoa tatizo la ucheleweshaji wa utoaji wa leseni na usajili wa vyombo vya uvuvi, Wizara kwa kuanzia imechukua jukumu la kushirikiana na Halmashauri za Manispaa za Temeke, Ilala na Kinondoni za Mkoa wa Dar Es Salaam kwa kuanzisha mfumo wa kutoa leseni za papo kwa papo, kusajili vyombo na kutoa tagi maalum (Smart License). Zoezi hili litasaidia upatikanaji wa leseni za uvuvi kwa wakati na kuongeza mapato kwa Halmashauri. Kutokana na mafanikio ya zoezi hili, Wizara itaendelea kutoa elimu na kuhamasisha Halmashauri nyingine zifuate mfumo huu ambao unatarajiwa kujumuishwa kwenye Sheria ya Uvuvi.
