New fishing port planned for Oman's Musandam region

Oman's Ministry of Agriculture and Fisheries has signed a deal with Al Sarooj Company to develop a fishing port in Musandam.

The statement from the official Oman News Agency (ONA), said: "The Ministry of Agriculture and Fisheries will sign an agreement with Al Sarooj Company to develop a sea-fishing port in the wilayat of Dibba with a total cost of about OMR 40 million."

ONA adds: "The project includes four basic components to serve the fisheries sector and facilities for the tourism and commercial sector as well as the Royal Oman Police, along with many other service facilities for port visitors, where two breakwaters will be constructed with a length of 2,000 metres, with a dock for the port with a depth of 10 metres while providing the breakers with navigation lights at the entrance.

"The Dibba Port development project comes within the government's plan to diversify the economy and work to develop fishing ports in the Sultanate to be an attractive environment for investments."
