    Activities at the village of Ras al Markaz are temporarily suspended until the completion of the fishing port in Duqm. Meanwhile, the work on the fishing harbour is progressing well and will be ready by the end of the next year or in 2021.

    Duqm fishing harbour is one of the regional ports capable of providing various services needed by large fishing vessels and thus contributing to enhancing the performance of fisheries industries near the harbour, which aims to make Duqm a key centre for fisheries industry in the Sultanate.

    The fisheries sector in Duqm is one of the most promising sectors in the region, as the region has a large stock of fish wealth which takes care of the needs of the region.
