Aquaculture in the Sultanate of Oman is presently at an early stage of development, both in terms of basic or applied research and private sector growth. The government scripted legislation regarding aquaculture in 2004 and in collaboration with FAO has developed a national strategy for aquaculture development in 2007. Since 1997, the Ministry of Agriculture and Fisheries Wealth has been engaged in seven major research projects on fish and shellfish culture. These included the investigations on abalone hatchery, mussel and oyster culture, shrimp farming and pilot trials on cage and pond culture of finfish. In addition site selection and feed development projects have been successfully completed. At present, three funded programs are ongoing which include: Abalone aquaculture which aimed to develop novel hatchery technologies and to examine the potential of enhancing the natural fishery, Hatchery development for finfish, which concentrates on the breeding and culture technologies for native species including groupers and sea breams; and Seacucumber aquaculture which investigates the feasibility of artificially producing the seeds and the farming of various species of holothurians while also considering the potential for fishery enhancement and commercial aquaculture production.
