Fujairah: Fishing Capital of the United Arab Emirates

Martin James, international salt and freshwater angler, consultant, broadcaster and writer believes that Fujairah is the fishing capital of the United Arab Emirates and ‘a perfect oasis’ for a holiday.

He writes about the various reasons as to why UAE is a top tourist destination. About the eastern state he writes:

“Fujairah with its mountains and ocean has provided this small Emirates State with an unparallel advantage. It boasts some beautiful scenery, a fact, which is fast reaching the eyes and ears of the world’s tourism industry.”

Martin James says, “Everyman in Fujairah is a fisherman at heart, the sea is in his blood.” To read more about the type of fish one is likely to catch in the Fujairah waters and how to go about it, click on this link:
