The Ministry of Municipality and Environment (MME) announced on its Twitter account, a fishing ban on King Fish starting August 15 to October 15.

The Ministry said that fishing is only allowed by using hooks and hand line. Fishers are not allowed to use nets and also prohibited the handling and transporting of King Fishnets. The move is aimed to protect the stocks of King Fish at Qatari water and preserving the country’s marine wealth.

The Fisheries Department would enforce the ban. The Ministry announces this two-month ban every year at this period.
