Reserve in Ras Al Khaimah receives fishes
Ras Al Khaimah, June 24, 2013
A delegation from UAE-based Environment Protection and Development Authority (EPDA) released 9,600 ‘silver seabream’ and 1,000 ‘hamour’ fishes into the Mina Al Arab Reserve in Ras Al Khaimah.
The reserve in Muzahmi Creek forms part of the Mina Al Arab project managed by leading property developer RAK Properties.
This is an ideal location for this project as it is full of reserves and coves and mangroves, said Dr Said M Al Ghais, executive director of EPDA.
“We have selected Mina Al Arab Reserve as it is considered an ideal area for nursing the ‘Silver Seabream’ before they are transferred to the fishery inventory. The Reserve also plays a key role in enriching the environmental resources in Ras Al Khaimah,” he said.
The presence of large number of mangroves in ‘Al Muzahmi’ will help these species to adapt to a natural life and increase the overall fish wealth in the UAE, he added.
Managing director and CEO Mohamed Sultan Al Qadi of RAK Properties, said: “We are delighted to contribute to the environment conservation initiatives being run in Ras Al Khaimah. We will continue to support all measures and programs designed to protect natural resources and boost fish wealth in the UAE.” – TradeArabia News Service
