  • Marine Fin Fish Hatchery, production capacity of 15,000,000 juvenile per year.
  • Establishment of support industries to the fish farming sector, including Hatcheries and Feed Factories.

Blue Water Projects

  • A bsupply of bio-secure io-secure supply of juvenile bream species to developing marine cage farm projects in Oman.
  • A bream Broodstock, considerably speed up further independent hatchery developments associated with marine cage projects
  • The development of broodstocks able to supply juveniles due to all-year spawning (advanced & retarded broodstocks with temperature and photoperiod controls)
  • Development of marine fin fish hatchery technology which is appropriate for the indigenous bream species found in Omani waters
  • Development of marine fin fish technology which optimizes production under Omani conditions
  • A free supply of high quality sea water to the existing Aquaculture Centre facilities allowing for extensive research projects to be undertaken by MAFW and other institutes at the Centre
  • Operating commercially, providing training for Omani aquaculture technicians in a commercial environment
  • A facility, which although operating commercially will be capable of undertaking species development; notably genetic strain selection and nutritional analysis which will be available to further increase efficiencies in marine fin fish production in Oman
  • A facility which employs marine fin fish experts who can assist and advise other aquaculture projects being developed in Oman
  • Quriyat Sea Park/ site is located 2 miles north of Quriyat fishing port, 65 miles north of Sur Industrial zone where the marine fin fish hatchery will be created and 28 miles south of the Muscat. Quriyats site sea water temperature is critical for the growth and hygiene of cultured fish, Sea Bream grows very well in temperatures between 18 and 32 degrees Celsius.
  • Quriyat fishing port is the base for the company’s boats and vessels base from where the personnel, juveniles and feeds transferred to the cage farms.
    The fishing port is also where the harvested fish are unloaded and driven to the packaging plant which will be located 50 meters from the port.
  • The local residents of Quriyat are familiar with fishing activities and the project is employ people with such requisite experience.
