    The purpose of the report is the formulation of fisheries policy or rather fisheries development policy of the United Arab Emirates for consideration and approval by the Government. The first part of the report contains a review of the actual development of fisheries as one of the important sectors of the country's economy. It is considered that the fishery resources are next to oil in order of importance of the national resources. A rapid increase in catch took place in the country over the las t ten years or so due to the efforts of the Government aimed at assisting the fishermen through loans, free maintenance services, construction of harbours and establishment of fish markets. The Government also does exploratory fishing in order to identify fish species and fishing grounds capable of supporting commercial operations. The report defines future fisheries policy with particular reference to: national policy objectives; fishery policy objectives; operational objectives. Emphasis has b een laid on the need for coordination of development activities at the Union level to avoid over-exploitation of limited resources and over-capitalization of the industry.
