The agreement will also provide the company with the opportunity to benefit from the laboratories and equipment of the centre to monitor the growth of the fingerlings perfectly and properly.
At the first stage, the company imported 300,000 seabream fish (0.2 grammes), which will be reared up to a weight of 2 grammes and then transferred to the floating cages belonging to the company in the Wilayat of Quriyat in the Governorate of Muscat.
The shipment will be followed by other shipments during the upcoming period.
In the second stage, the company will be carrying out the hatching of the seabream fish inside the centre and thus completely stop to import.
The company has previously installed a system to bring seawater to the centre by high standards to ensure that sea water reaches the quantities required to meet the needs of the hatchery and the appropriate quality for hatchery and breeding of seabream fish or any other fish that can be cultivated in the future.
The Blue Water Company is a subsidiary of the Oman Aquaculture Development Company, which is affiliated to Oman Investment Fund.
