Analysis of the Fisheries and Aquaculture sector in Qatar - Fishes and Invertebrates with Production, Consumption, Import and Export Data and Trends (2017 - 2022)

With a GDP of USD 212 billion, and a population of 2.27 million, Qatar?s economy reflects a high reliance on oil and gas exports. This proportion was brought just under half of Qatar?s nominal GDP since 2000, but oil & gas continue to account for 92% of the Qatari government?s revenue. While diversification by way of infrastructure, construction, financial services manufacturing, etc., in combination with Qatar?s successful bid for the World Cup 2022, has worked well, the country is yet to turn its attention to its fisheries and aquaculture sector. The market for fisheries and aquaculture in Qatar valued at USD XX million is expected to increase at a CAGR of XX% over 2016-2022.

In terms of aquaculture enhancement, the government is leading a research institute at Ras Matbekh in Al Khor. New measures of integrating aquaculture to reflect popular global demand will involve rearing of shrimp and sea bass harvests.

Restraints and Challenges
There is an absence of a frozen supply chain from the port to the supermarkets in Qatar, while such a chain exists for other meat. The fishing infrastructure is severely outdated in the country. In areas like Doha, Wakra, and Al Khor, the total number of boats, 50% of which are less than 40 feet in length have remained constant at 515 in the past 17 years. Another constraint includes a fee of up to USD 137,331 to acquire a single fishing license. Desalination leads to an increase in salinity of water where fish naturally occur, further hampering the stocks in the area.

Should fisheries be taken up as an initiative by the government, it would attract numbers beyond a subsistence level of artisanal fishermen. This is because of expansion in population, affluence, and westernization. The increase in western population and concepts of healthy living further encourage the rationale for a domestic production of protein-rich fish. Currently, there are some small-scale tilapia cultures being undertaken. In addition, larval production of green tiger prawns and yellow-fin sea bream are being utilized to enhance overly fished marine stocks.

Key Developments

? A new research center near Al Khor has been proposed by the Qatari government at Ras Matbekh. This new research center shall have a production capacity of about 3000 per annum.
? Proactive initiatives by Elias Kountouris, Greek aquaculture expert tying up with Al Meera hypermarket is looking to strengthen food security through the availability of local fish, preferably sourced from local fishermen in a consolidated way.
