Special attention has been directed at boosting commercial aquaculture production in Saudi Arabia. Feasibility studies concerning aquaculture operations demonstrated the economic importance of investing in different aspects of this sector. Compared to other investment activities, aquaculture is a relatively new field, however, considered economically important and a sector attractive to foreign investment. The Ministry of Agriculture strongly supports and encourages investment by facilitating the acquisition of project land, as well as, providing favourable loans. Experimental and show case aquaculture projects have been established by the authorities to encourage local and foreign investments. The Ministry of Agriculture is especially focused on the activities and development of the aquaculture sector, so as to meet local needs and for the purpose of exports from such an important source of animal protein. Aquaculture projects in Saudi Arabia are either inland projects, established within agriculture projects or close to them, or coastal projects located along the Red Sea coast. The Department of Aquaculture is responsible for issuing licenses, for setting-up operations for aquaculture projects after the evaluation of feasibility studies for these projects.
