 In line with Almouj Marina’s drive to protect and preserve Oman’s marine life and the delicate eco-system, a team of volunteer divers took part in a coral reef clean-up organized by the Ministry of Environment and Climate Affairs. The initiative saw a team of aqua-environmentalist collect marine debris from the reefs, including discarded fishing nets and rope, food packaging and plastic items.

Almouj Marina takes its environmental responsibilities seriously and is proud to play its part in conserving Oman’s incredible natural assets. It has collaborated with a variety of world-leading research projects and environmental initiatives with the Ministry of Agriculture and Fisheries and Sultan Qaboos University’s Marine Science and Fisheries Department. In a regional first, the marina was awarded the coveted marine industry International Achievement Award from the International Clean Marina Accreditation Program in 2014. Underlining its commitment to environmental stewardship, Almouj Marina recently launched a series of beach-clean up events, the first of which saw litter collected from the Daymaniyat Islands and will be converted into artwork to raise awareness of the damage caused by marine pollution.
