UAE fish markets now open for home deliveries

Fish markets in UAE have announced that they will be implementing a home-delivery set up for new catches straight to residents’ houses, reported Khaleej Times.
This is part of the precautionary measures being imposed to help fight the spread of the coronavirus disease or COVID-19.
Ras Al Khaimah fish markets said that they are receiving up to 100 home delivery orders every day.
“The home delivery service was rolled out as a precautionary measure to reduce the risk of coronavirus infection and transmission,” Humaid Al Zaabi, deputy chairman, RAK Fishermen Association said in an interview with Khaleej Times.
Home deliveries, however, may cost more with at least Dh15 charge per order.
Customers may also pick up their orders at the market’s parking lots.
“Fish orders are home delivered in ice to ensure they remain fresh,” the group added.
Meanwhile, the Fujairah fish market has also started the home-delivery service.
“No one needs to come in person to the fish market or the association. All orders will be delivered home as fast as possible,” the report quoted Mahmud Al Shara, chairman of the Fishermen Association in Fujairah, as saying.
