Fishing in Duqm

The Governorate of Al Wusta is famous for its marine wealth, and it has a diverse spectrum of marine species like shrimps, abalone, king fish, emperor, grouper and sea bream. Due to the strategic location of the Governorate, overlooking the Arabian Sea, many opportunities of investments are waiting to be exploited.

Duqm enjoys huge fish wealth that contributes to the success of the Special Economic Zone. Therefore, the comprehensive plan of the SEZD included the establishment of a fishing port, an integrated complex for fish activities, a fishing harbour at 6 metre depth, a marine research centre, and an international standard quality assurance centre for fresh and processed fish exports.

Many fishing companies and factories started their businesses like Golden Fin International Company, which produces around 300 tonnes daily.
