Outline review of the critical issues facing the fisheries sector Sultanate of Oman

World Bank - Project Dates:
August 2009 - September 2009

Description of Project:
Oman's Vision 2020 provides an overall strategy for the fisheries sector. However there is a need to conduct a relatively narrow review within the framework of Vision 2020 and the Seventh Five Year Plan (2006-2010) of what the fisheries sector has achieved in terms of what was laid out for them and what, in general terms, are the critical issues facing the sector between now and 2020. This will be the precursor to a new sector strategy in due course.

Services Provided:
Poseidon provided two staff with experience of Oman's fisheries sector to conduct a review of the recent achievements of the fisheries sector and to develop an outline of the critical issues facing the institutional and operational elements of the industry.
