Heading to the RAK fish market? Check prices online first

Most of the daily reports come from the two main fish markets: the Old RAK Market in the morning and the Muairidh market in the evening

Going to a fish market in Ras Al Khaimah, but do not know what type to buy and how much they are for? Simply check the social accounts of the RAK fishermen society.

The society has started posting daily video reports of all the fish markets of the northern emirate to make people aware about the types and prices of the fish available there.

Khalifa Saif Al Muhairi, chairman of the RAK fishermen society, said the move is the first-of-its-kind not only in the country but also in the entire region.

"So many people have liked our daily reports and given their feedback on the pioneering initiative which is very helpful to them in deciding what and how much fish to buy."

These reports raise public awareness on the updates and changes at all the fish markets in the emirate, he added.

"The information also helps protect customers' rights against greedy fish traders," he pointed out. "They also get acquainted with the fresh fish available in the market."

Al Muhairi, who creates the daily reports, said he first posts these important contents on his social media accounts on Instagram and Snapchat (khalifahareeb). "All my reports on the fish markets here are widely shared on social media."

Most of the daily reports come from the two main fish markets in the emirate: the Old Ras Al Khaimah Market in the morning and the Muairidh market in the evening, he explained.

"Apart from making people aware on the fish prices and types available, we also shed light on all the services available, and guide people on how to buy the right fish, while looking for its freshness."

The reports include interviews with the captains, fishermen, fish traders, and customers, he elaborated.

Wafaa Al Wakeel, a teacher, said she started following the reports which helps her decide on what type of fish to buy on a particular day. "These reports are interesting and valuable."

Mohammed Askar, a salesman, said he used to go to the fish market every Thursday, but now goes there more frequently after checking these reports. "I now know when to go to the fish market, and what to buy."
