The event will highlight Qatar’s cultural diversity and historic monuments, as well as the human values of its culture. It will promote the eternal Islamic values especially those based on science and human dignity and promote the Islamic cultural heritage in an interconnected world.
Samkna eyes expansion to meet rising demand
Samkna the aquaculture project using floating cage technology in open water, has successfully started production, meeting around 20% of local demand. The project has started by farming Sea Bass because it’s a strong species and grows faster in warm water, has delicious taste, and is rich in Omega 3.
