Dakhla – King Mohammed VI inaugurated on Monday a new fish market in Dakhla.
The MAD 26-million-dirham market, part of the implementation of the national Halieutis strategy which provides for organizing the traditional and coastal fishing industry in Morocco, is in line with the development momentum in the southern city of Dakhla.
Built on an area of 3,070 square meters, the new market includes a refrigerated exhibition and sales space, a reception hangar for the identification and weighing of products, an allotment and dispatch hangar, a cold room, a counter to grade the industrial fish, a veterinary office, administrative and technical facilities, as well as a parking.
This new marketing infrastructure aims to improve the quality, fluidity and transparency of business transactions and develop fishing related activities in the region.
This project also provides for developing the national consumption of fish products by allowing citizens to make better use of the country’s maritime resources in the best conditions in terms of price, quality, availability and safety.
Built in accordance with the international standards of the highest quality, this new facility is equipped with technologies that guarantee the computerization of the whole sales process. This computerization maximizes the speed and transparency of the transactions and guarantees the strict monitoring of the traceability of products.
The new fish market of Dakhla is part of the new generation fish markets all over the country, such those existing in Nador, Larache, Mohammedia, El Jadida, Safi, Agadir, Tan Tan, Laayoune, Tarfaya and Boujdour.
