Saudi Aquaculture Society has submitted a study to Grains Silos & Flour Mills Organization, representative of Ministry of Agriculture in Ministerial Committee for Supply to approve the inclusion of inputs of locally produced fish farms fodders that haven’t been included in the statuses of supporting the fodders and inputs thereof. This is along the lines of what is exiting as for the fodders of poultry and livestock, dairy producers and others. This participates in achieving the prosperity for the citizen and decreasing the expenses of available fish farms products.
Aquaculture industry in KSA is deemed as one of the food industries that basically depend on the fodders in the inputs thereof, because the fodders represents more than 60% of the production expenses. SAS has showed in the application that such industry seeks seriously to cover KSA needs from marine foods and products, as the kingdom production in 2010 AD has reached to about 20.000 tons from the farmed fish and shrimps against imports that increase in size than 150.000 tons annually. Thereby, it becomes clear that Aquaculture Industry plays a great role in achieving the food and social security in KSA as well as its great participation in overcoming the unemployment through providing job opportunities for the citizens from the boys and girls.
