BOSTON (AP) - People hoping to do a little fishing in Massachusetts this year have an easier time buying and displaying recreational licenses and permits.

The Department of Fish and Game has announced that the state’s licensing system is now mobile-friendly, making it possible for people to quickly obtain licenses and permits using mobile devices such as iPhone and Android smartphones.

The first phase of the project gives customers the ability to use smartphones to obtain saltwater fishing permits, freshwater fishing licenses and trapping licenses.

Hunting and sporting licenses are not available for purchase using mobile devices at this time, but will be available later in in the year.

A new electronic signature will allow customers to download the licenses and permits to their mobile devices without having to print and sign the documents.
