The Fisheries Department in Al Wusta Governorate has closed the fishermen village in Ras Madrakah in wilayat Duqm in order to limit the gathering of fishermen and ensuring their safety in light of the spread of new coronavirus.
The administration has also taken a number of precautionary measures, such as preventing entry of non-fishermen into fishing ports and stopping recreational crafts.
To ensure social distancing, the fish landing data for coastal fishing vessels is received by WhatsApp. The department also coordinates between fishermen and fish companies to facilitate the marketing of fish products and ensure their distribution in marketing outlets in various governorates of the Sultanate, as Wusta Governorate is one of the regions rich in fish wealth.
