Bahrain bids to build fish stocks
Manama, September 19, 2011
A fresh batch of fish has been released into the waters around Bahrain’s coast as part of an initiative to replenish the kingdom’s marine life.
The latest experiment, involving hammour, follows the release of 80,000 sobaity bream fish in July.
Abdulhakeem Alkhayyat, chairman of major mixed-use development Diyar Al Muharraq and chief executive officer Aaref Hejres oversaw the event.
MP Mahmood Al Mahmood, Muharraq Municipal Council chairman Abdulnasser Al Mahmeed and councillor Ghazi Al Murbati were present.
Public Commission for the Protection of Marine Resources, Environment and Wildlife Fisheries and Marine Resources general director Jassim Al Qasser, Fisheries Resources director Anwar Al Hariri and Marine Resources director Redha Shams also attended.
"The areas were carefully selected based on studies that have revealed regions where stocks have decreased," said Alkhayyat.
"This will ensure the availability of fish at competitive prices in local markets and more importantly it will preserve the marine environment in its natural condition." – TradeArabia News Service
