“Ban of the shrimp fishing ends today,” this was officially announced by the Agriculture and Marine Resources Agency at the Ministry of Works, Municipal Affairs and Urban Planning in line with the Resolution No. (18) for the year 2020 regarding the ban on fishing, trade or sell shrimp, from February 1 to July 31, 2020.

The decision pointed out that lifting ban does not mean allowing shrimp fishing in illegal ways that violates Resolution No. (205) for the year 2018 regarding the ban on fishing by the bottom trawl in the territorial waters of the Kingdom of Bahrain.

The announcement included the Marine Control Department call on all fishermen to adhere to the Ministerial Decision to prevent fishing by fishing by the bottom trawl, which came primarily for the purpose of protecting marine wealth in the Kingdom of Bahrain and ensuring the sustainability of the important resource in terms of achieving food security in the Kingdom of Bahrain.
