Chairman’s message

 

In the name of Allah the Merciful, Lord of all worlds, to whom we are eternally grateful,

Prayers and peace be upon our Prophet, Muhammad, his family, all of his companions, and everyone who follows his path till the end of days...

 

I am pleased to welcome you all to NAQUA's official website. I wish to thank you for your interest in our online platform which we have specifically designed to communicate and share with you the vision, strategy, areas of activity, and future plans of one of the largest integrated aquaculture operations on the world's coastal deserts.

 

NAQUA is a national success story that reflects an ambitious vision. It came to us like a dream in the desert; a dream that was brought to life by the steadfast efforts of some of this nation's best and most loyal men. Now, we stand as one of the leading Aquaculturers in the world.

 

Our many achievements over more than 36 years were not just a lucky strike, but the fruit of thorough thinking, planning, and hard work. We journeyed around the world and visited every country that has excelled in the field of aquaculture to pick up from where they stopped. We set our goals, and based on our findings, we came up with a locally applicable and comprehensive business model that stretches along the virgin coasts of the Red Sea, in Al-Laith Governorate to the south of Jeddah.

 

 

Our operations are 100% compliant with local and global standards, as well as with internationally recognized food safety, environmental sustainability, and biosecurity regulations. Our products are best-in-class, offering a superior quality that caters to our customers' needs and exceeds markets' expectations, all at competitive prices.

Today, developing coastal areas as well as fish and marine life, remains one of our key objectives as we strive to fulfill our mission in line with the Kingdom's Vision 2030 and the national goals of achieving economic diversification and food security.

 

Aquaculture is undoubtedly emerging as a promising industry with a great potential to become a pillar of Saudi economy in the near future. We hope that the coming years will hold many other success stories  with Allah's blessings, the precious trust of our stakeholders, and the unwavering determination of our highly professional and resourceful management team, as we continue to create valuable opportunities for a new generation of leaders and game changers.

 

I believe that he who has vision is capable of molding the present to make a better future... Our health, and very existence for that matter, has and will always depend on our food security, and we make it our national duty to keep it in safe hands.
