The initiative also addresses food security in the UAE through the farming of seafood as a core element in the process. This is a synergistic industrial platform that supports the aviation sector, the oil and gas industry, food production and the creation of a new agricultural alternative in the UAE. Fish and shrimp raised at the facility provide nutrients for the plants as well as contribute to the UAE’s food production. The UAE is proud to be a pioneer in this domain.
