The development of broodstocks able to supply juveniles due to all-year spawning (advanced & retarded broodstocks with temperature and photoperiod controls).
Development of marine fin fish hatchery technology which is appropriate for the indigenous bream species found in Omani waters.
Development of marine fin fish technology which optimises production under Omani conditions.
A free supply of high quality sea water to the existing Aquaculture Centre facilities allowing for extensive research projects to be undertaken by MAFW and other institutes at the Centre.
Operating commercially, providing training for Omani aquaculture technicians in a commercial environment.
A facility, which although operating commercially will be capable of undertaking species development; notably genetic strain selection and nutritional analysis which will be available to further increase efficiencies in marine fin fish production in Oman.
A facility which employs marine fin fish experts who can assist and advise other aquaculture projects being developed in Oman. Source: oadc.com
