Dubai has announced plans to build a major new fish market featuring more than 500 units across a 120,000 sq m site.

The new site, located in the emirate’s Al Hamriya district, will include almost 150 fruit and vegetable stands, 63 shops for spices, more than 70 meat outlets, and over 50 supermarkets, in addition to 769 parking spaces.

In a statement on official news agency WAM, Dubai Municipality director general Engineer Hussain Nasser Lootah said that the project was already out for tender.

No official valuation or timeframe for the development has been made public by Dubai Municipality, but local media reports put the value of the project at AED250m and said the fish market would replace an existing site in Deira.

People in the UAE are believed to consume 33kg of fish every year, more than double the world’s average.
