The Ministry of Municipality will be giving the local fishermen subsidies and support to the tune of QR29.7mn until 2023 in the form of fuel and crushed ice, local Arabic daily Arrayah reported.
Ismail al-Sheikh, head of the fishermen affairs section at the Ministry Municipality, said QR16.8mn have been allocated in the form of fuel subsidies for 438 fishing vessels, and 164 fishing boats. The ice subsidy is to the value of QR12.951mn.
Agreements are signed in this regard by the ministry's Agriculture Affairs and Fisheries Sector with Qatar Fuel Company, Al Wakra Port Ice Factory, and Doha Imports and Exports Centre in order to encourage fishermen and support the national food security strategy.
The official explained that electronic chips are installed on the fuel tanks of the boats and vessels that have qualified for the subsidies. Refuelling under the scheme is available only at the fuel stations in the main fishing harbours of the country and that too direct to the fuel tanks.
The fisheries department has the right to stop the supply of subsidised fuel in case of any non-compliance with the set rules and regulations, the official added.
