Ministry releases 95,000 fingerlings in Sharjah
The Ministry of Climate Change and Environment has released 95,000 fingerlings in Sharjah.
The fingerlings were released in Al Qorm and Khor Al Hamriya with the cooperation of Al Hamriya Municipality and the local fishermen association, reported Al Ittihad, the Arabic-language sister paper of The National.
They were hatched by the Sheikh Khalifa Centre for Marine Research to increase populations in the Al Qorm area, as well as spread awareness about the fishing and reproduction seasons and compliance with fishing regulations.
Saif Al Shamsi, head of Al Hamriya Fishermen Association, said the initiative supports its decision to prohibit fishing in Khor Al Hamriya to replenish fish populations.
