The fish market in Fujairah has started delivering fresh fish to customers home.
The move comes following halt on sale of fish in open market as part of the ongoing efforts to reduce the spread of Covid-19 infection and transmission, according to a senior official.
Mahmud Al Shara, chairman, Fishermen Association, Fujairah, said customers can contact the association for deliveries. "No one needs to come in person to the fish market or the association. All orders will be delivered home as fast as possible."
The fish delivered will be fresh, he added. "It is neither imported nor frozen."
There are three phone numbers for home deliveries: 0505909292, 0506908879 and 0555630577.
Al Shara said all fishermen in the emirate of Fujairah have been instructed to observe the updated rules on fishing, he underlined.
"Only three people can board a boat during daily fishing trips."
Khairi Muhammad, an Egyptian resident, thanked the association for the home delivery initiative. "This will truly help us enjoy eating fresh fish without being exposed to the risk of contracting the coronavirus."
Ahmad Saleh, an Emirati national, said it is the responsibility of everyone to respect and adhere to rules. "This is for the safety of us all," he said, adding that the home delivery service was a step in the right direction.
