Muscat:  The Ministry of Agricultural and Fisheries Wealth and Water Resources announced the start of implementing the ban on fishing and trading of kingfish in the Sultanate for this year 2021.

“The decision will be from next Sunday, August 15, until the date of October 15, 2021 in accordance with the provisions of Ministerial Resolution No. (2014/230 AD)” the Ministry said in a statement.

The ministry called on fishermen, fish carriers, companies and institutions who work in fishing, transporting, buying, selling, trading and exporting kingfish to abide by the provisions of the aforementioned ministerial decision.

The ministry stressed the need to review the departments and centers of fish development in the wilayats to register the quantities of kingfish they have before the ban period starts.

It also stated that it will not be allowed to trade and export kingfish during the ban period unless it has been registered.

The ministry called on all concerned to cooperate in order to achieve the public interest and to avoid legal procedures and penalties against violators.
