Sheikh Khalifa Marine Research Centre develops UAE fish farming
Fish Farm LLC – the company in charge of the management, operation, and maintenance of Sheikh Khalifa Marine Research Centre – is working to enhance operations to reach full operational capacity in one month, in time to support the upcoming fish farming season. The company has set a comprehensive plan to produce more than 7 million fish fingerlings of various species, including seabream, hammour, seabass and cobia, among others.
In April 2021, Almheiri signed an agreement with Fish Farms LLC, represented by its CEO Bader bin Mubarak, to operate and maintain the Sheikh Khalifa Marine Research Centre’s hatchery in Umm Al-Quwain in accordance with the highest international standards. The MoU aims to boost the hatchery’s productivity and upgrade the quality of the fish fingerlings it produces to be supplied to aquaculture farms around the country – a central component of the UAE’s food security system.
