National Prawn Company, owner of the largest shrimp farm in the Middle East, plans to develop fish farming projects in Gulf countries and in Asia and Africa.  It will start in Saudi Arabia with an investment of $300 million.
 
The aim is to farm kingfish, cobia, barramundi, mahi mahi and milkfish on coastal desert land.  “We are looking at fish farming in various Gulf countries,” said General Manager Peter Fraser.  “There are lots of opportunities to develop waste desert land in coastal areas in the region.  We are also looking at viable projects in African countries that have deserts adjoining coastal regions.”
 
At its shrimp farm, NPC produces 15,000 tons of shrimp a year from a farm developed on 50 square kilometers of coastal wasteland, 200 kilometers south of Riyadh.  A second phase of the project—which will bring the total cost of the project up to a billion dollars—will cover an additional 50 square kilometers.
 
Frazer said: “This is a unique project utilizing wasteland.  About 3,000 employees work at the desert shrimp farm and within the next two years 5,000 people will be working in the expanded project.  By 2011 our production capacity will go up to 50,000 tons of shrimp per year.  ...Saudi Arabia is known as an oil exporting country—but shrimp is the second-largest Saudi export to Japan after oil.  We currently export to 30 countries in Europe, the Middle East and Asia.”
 
NPC is owned jointly by the Saudi business groups Al Rahji, Al Balla and Al Subaiei.  That group also owns Al Watania, the Middle East’s largest poultry producer, which produces a million eggs and 500,000 chickens a day.
