The tender for the development of Oman's largest integrated fishery harbour project in Duqm will be floated "soon" by the Special Economic Zone Authority Duqm, according to the Minister of Agriculture and Fisheries. 

The project will underpin the development of a fishery hub, planned as part of the ambitious Duqm economic zone. 

"We are in an advanced stage of floating the tender, and it could happen very soon.

Speaking at the In-Country Value (ICV) Conference at the Oman Chamber of Commerce and Industry (OCCI) on Monday, H.E. Dr Fuad al Sajwani, said: "We are in an advanced stage of floating the tender, and it could happen very soon.

"Being the largest fishing harbour in the sultanate the project will be a complete hub for fishing activities in Oman.

We expect the entire project to cost between $259m (RO100m) - $285m (RO110m)."

The project will encompass a fishing harbour with facilities required to accommodate small- and medium-size fishing boats, retail and wholesale export markets, a fish processing industry, training centre, marine research centre and an international standard quality assurance centre for fresh and processed fish exports.

"The hub would include all facilities to promote Oman's fishing industry. It is expected to attract catch from within Oman as well as neighbouring countries for processing and export," H E Sajwani said.
