(MENAFN - Muscat Daily) To meet any shortfall in supply during Ramadan and check inflation, the Oman Fisheries Company has said that it will supply more than 2,000 tonnes of fish from its stocks during the next couple of months.

Ministry of Agriculture and Fisheries (MoAF) officials also held meetings with fish companies and transporters last week to chalk out a plan to meet any shortage during the holy month.

There is enormous pressure on the markets as fish consumption goes up during the holy month and summer heat, accompanied by choppy seas, restrict fishermen from venturing into the sea.

In Ramadan, the demand for local favourites like kingfish, grouper, mackerel and tuna goes up tremendously and that is why the Oman Fisheries Company has stored these varieties along with other popular ones like emperor, barracuda and crocker.

And this year it is no different except that in order to reach a large number of customers, we will be making arrangements to sell from mobile trucks apart from supplyingto all fish markets,'' said a senior official of the company.

He added that this is also done to check price rise. ''With ensured fish supply, we manage to keep prices in check, which otherwise will shoot up in case of supply crunch.''

MoAF, on its part, held an extensive meeting at the Directorate of Fisheries Development in the wilayat of Suwaiq, North Batinah, to discuss a schedule for supplying fish in the markets. The meeting was held in the presence of Eng Said bin Rashid bin Nasir al Miqbali, director of Fisheries Development in Suwaiq.

The meeting discussed the role of companies engaged in marketing and sale of fish as well transporters and fish outlets.

Eng Miqbali said, ''The preparations for Ramadan started a long time ago. The ministry over the years has worked in advance to meet any shortfall during summer months, especially during Ramadan.''

He further added that the ministry has got a good response from fishing companies, transporters and fish outlets to take up the challenge. ''In the coming days, the public will be informed through the media about special outlets that will be selling fis
