the Ruler of Ras Al Khaimah or his deputy.
The decree also says the new establishment is aimed at developing and organising
the Emirate’s fishing sector, raising awareness of the need to preserve its fish
resources and nature, meeting the needs of fishermen, providing services for
fishing, improving annual production as well as working on meeting international
health and safety standards.
The decree asks all authorities and bodies to deal and coordinate with the Ras
Al Khaimah Fishermen Establishment to enable it to achieve its goals.
