Unauthorized and uncertified small seagoing fishing crafts are being widely used for illegal, unreported and unregulated fishing, especially in the Indian sub-continent. Nevertheless, the registration is mandatory; the display of the registration mark and its standards for the seagoing fishing craft has not been specified in detail. Now, any fraudster can mark a fake registration number quite easily on the craft and can be used for criminal activities in the coastal areas because of the effortless wipe out possibility for the present registration marks. Thus due to the lack of standardization and regulation for the display of registration number plate for the seagoing craft, identification of genuine one is very difficult. This paper proposes a typical design of a Smart Security Registration Plate (SSRP) using Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) technology to provide secure authentication of the motorized non-mechanical fishing crafts.
