AquaSol was retained by a young entrepreneur from Bahrain to perform a site search, site analysis, and feasibility study for a proposed commercial aquaculture project in Oman.  A two week mission to Oman was completed and a high potential site for fish farming was identified.  An aquaculture feasibility study for a land-based marine fish farming project was prepared.  The estimated cost to develop the proposed fish farming project was OMR 3.3 million (US$ 8.6 million).  A proposal to develop the project was submitted to the Ministry of Fisheries Wealth in November 2011.  Total area of the requested site was approximately 1,800 hectares.
