Oman Aquaponics Feasibility Study

Project Funding: PAIPED
Project Summary: Oman Aquaponics Feasibility Study


MEP were commissioned by the Public Authority for Investment Promotion and Export Development (PAIPED) in the Sultanate of OMAN, to complete a feasibility study for the development of  an aquaponics facility in the country. The project included a full look at the marketing aspects of both fish and plant species in Oman, before providing full technical (including CAD based design drawings), operational and financial plans for a pilot scale facility.

It is hoped that the facility will provide a blueprint for further aquaponic development in the country and subsequent improvements in work opportunities outside the major cities and food security for the people of Oman.
