Opportunity.......!!
More than 10 tons of fresh
shrimps landing in UAE wholesale
markets everyday from foreign
countries.

Frozen seafood of around 100


250 tons landing in UAE, these are
repacked and exported to many
European destination.

UAE is a consumer state especially


for shrimps. Shrimp catching is
banned in UAE, so only source other
than import is Al Jaraf Shrimps.
Threats.......!!
Disease problems.
Power Failures.
High water temperature during July,
August months and very low water
temperature during winter months affecting
the growth of fishes and shrimps.

Weakness.......!!
Limited WSA for farming due to the
high land value in UAE so expansion is
very difficult
There is no feed production in UAE and
depends on imported feeds with high
prices, logistics problems and customs
duty which all contributes to the cost of
production

Future Prospect
Way Forward.......!!
We have to diversify into more areas like pearl
oyster farming, seaweed culture, B-Carotene and
Bio diesel production from micro algae; fish
farming etc.

Since more countries are planning for a ban on


shrimp trawling from sea, more demand with
cultured shrimps in the near future.

We are in the process of converting our system


into super intensive farming.

Al Ajban farm can be made into 100% organic


products with a very high price for the products.

Organic products will have a very good demand


in the coming years.
Conclusion
Way Forward.......!!

Shrimp farming is a highly profitable business.


With in a short time we can take the crop so
quick return of investment.
With more WSA in operation, comparatively
less cost of production and more profit.
Multitrophic utilization of culture ponds with
seaweeds,finfishes,shrimps and molluscs will be
very lucrative in terms of biomass and cost of
production.
