New fish market opens in Oman’s Al Mudhabi Wilayat ahead of Ramadan

MUSCAT : Dr. Abdul Aziz bin Ali Al Mushaykhi, Director General of the General Directorate of Agricultural Wealth and Water Resources in North Al Sharqiyah Governorate, explained that the trial operation of the fish market in Al Mudjaibi has begun by meeting the needs of citizens in the wilayat and its neighboring areas.

The new market, supervised by the Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries and Water Resources, and funded by the Petroleum Development Oman Company at a cost of more than RO 365,000, aligns with the Ministry’s strategy to establish modern fish markets across Oman. These markets are designed to meet health and quality standards for fish products, while also supporting small and medium enterprises and workers in the fish selling and marketing sector.

Situated near the main road linking the Wilayat of Sinaw and the Niyabat of Samad Al-Shan in Al Mudhaibi, the market’s location is strategically placed close to residential and commercial areas. This is aimed to not only cater to locals but also to serve nearby governorates like Al Wusta and South Al-Sharqiyah, known for their abundant fish production. Additionally, the market is anticipated to open new channels for the fish sector.

The new fish market in Al-Mudhaibi spans an area of 920 square meters on a plot of land measuring 8,000 square meters. It boasts 14 display and sale tables, a dedicated fish cutting hall with seven tables, waiting areas for consumers, and a wholesale hall. Other facilities include a cold storage unit, an ice production plant, and four commercial stores attached to the market.
