THE Public Works Authority (Ashghal) has announced completion of construction of Aquatic Fisheries and Research Centre in Ras Matbakh.
Engineer Abdul Hakim Ahmed al Hashemi, Head of Public Projects Section in the Buildings Project Management Department at Ashghal, said that the project was built according to the highest standards of construction quality and design as well as Qatar's green building specifications being followed by Ashghal since 2010.
Hashemi added:"The facility, located in Ras Matbakh, has a value of approximately QR237.7 million, and stretches over 101,000 square metres. The centre is a scientific institution specialised in marine environmental research and studies and fish farming, aiming to help monitor and protect marine ecosystems, develop and increase local fish production, support biodiversity and train national human force on using modern technologies in aquaculture."
It is expected that the production capacity of the fish hatchery unit will reach 2.4 million larvae through four seasons of hatchery per year. The production capacity of the shrimp hatchery unit is expected to reach 2 million larvae through four hatchery seasons per year and the production of shrimp to reach 6 tonnes per year per season.
Hashemi clarified that the research centre project is made up of three main units; a marine finfish hatchery, a marine shrimp hatchery, and various buildings specified for scientific and administrative laboratories, in addition to services and supplement buildings.
The fish and shrimp farming unit includes a number of sub-units and facilities, such as a water pumping station, a marine fish hatchery, incubation units, fattening fish, a fish pond processing unit and six laboratories.
The administrative office building contains two floors, including 28 administrative offices, two meeting rooms and a lecture hall.
