This program introduced a system of number plate for the Comorian fishing boats.

In the context of piracy, the registration number will prevent sometimes dramatic confusion with pirate boats from elsewhere. This will facilitate, anti-piracy operations", highlighted the Director General of the center, Saïd Boina
