In 2019, 863 tons of shrimp, valued at OMR 2.9 million were produced by artisanal fishing methods. 320 tons were exported and around 543 tons were consumed locally.



Artisanal fishermen, companies, hotels, restaurants and individuals have been warned to adhere to the start and end dates of the season and to record the quantities of shrimp they have dealt with at the end of November.
