United Arab Emirates

The United Arab Emirates is a constitutional federation of seven emirates; Abu Dhabi, Dubai, Sharjah, Ajman, Umm al-Qaiwain, Ras al-Khaimah and Fujairah. The federation was formally established on 2 December 1971. The United Arab Emirates (UAE) occupies an area of 83,600 sq km along the southeastern tip of the Arabian Peninsula. Qatar lies to the west, Saudi Arabia to the south and west, and Oman to the north and east. The total population of UAE is 8.26 million (2011). The large population of the UAE consists of the tourist. Almost people from more than 40 countries live there. The capital and the largest city of the federation, is Abu Dhabi. But the Dubai is the most famous and it is consider as a business hub. Four-fifths of the UAE is desert, yet it is a country of contrasting landscapes, from aweinspiring dunes to rich oases, precipitous rocky mountains to fertile plains. The United Arab Emirates, one of the world's fastest growing tourist destinations, has all the right ingredients for an unforgettable holiday, sun, sand, sea, sports, unbeatable shopping, top-class hotels and restaurants, an intriguing traditional culture, a safe and welcoming environment.

History of UAE
Originally the area was inhabited by a seafaring people who were converted to Islam in the 7th century. Later, a dissident sect, the Carmathians, established a powerful sheikdom, and its army conquered Mecca. After the sheikdom disintegrated, its people became pirates. Threatening the Sultanate of Muscat and Oman early in the 19th century, the pirates provoked the intervention of the British, who in 1820 enforced a partial truce and in 1853 a permanent truce. Thus what had been called the Pirate Coast was renamed the Trucial Coast. The British provided the nine Trucial states with protection but did not formally administer them as a colony. The British withdrew from the Persian Gulf in 1971, and the Trucial states became a federation called the United Arab Emirates (UAE). Two of the Trucial states, Bahrain and Oman , chose not to join the federation, reducing the number of states to seven.

The country signed a military defense agreement with the U.S. in 1994 and one with France in 1995. After the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks on the U.S., the UAE was identified as a major financial center used by al-Qaeda in transferring money to the hijackers (two of the 9/11 hijackers were UAE citizens). The nation immediately cooperated with the U.S., freezing accounts tied to suspected terrorists and strongly clamping down on money laundering. Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan, the founder of the UAE and ruler of the federation since 1971, died in Nov. 2004. His son succeeded him. In Jan. 2006, Sheik Maktoum bin Rashid Al Maktoum, the prime minister of the UAE and the emir of Dubai, died. Crown Prince Sheikh Muhammad ibn Rashid al-Maktoum assumed both roles.

The culture of UAE is much diversified. The people from around more than 40 countries live there. They also bring their value and norm which collectively make addition in the culture of UAE. Despite of this, that every tourists have equal rights to live according to their values and the Emirates government protect their right as well. The official religion of the country is Islam. Etiquette is an important aspect of UAE Culture and Tradition. The visitors here are expected to show manners and etiquette. Like every country in the world the tourists have to accustom themselves according to the culture. Similarly in UAE, to get close to the local people, foreigners have to put themselves in the traditional norms and culture of UAE. Other than the gulf countries such as Oman, Kuwait etc, the UAE has designed a deliberate structure so that the foreigners can live the life according to their own norm and values. The Ministry's Cultural Department plays the key role to preserve the cultural heritages and retain the country's tradition. The Department regularly publish books related to heritage, culture, art and theater. Several lectures, seminars and other cultural activities and events are organized by the Ministry's Cultural Department in UAE.

In the UAE, a land where rain rarely fell and little grew, harvesting fish was the traditional lifeblood of the community, a valuable source of protein since time immemorial. As a result, Emiratis were intimately connected to the sea, only taking from it what they needed. The practice of splitting and drying fish (small fish e.g. jashr (anchovies) or uma (sardines) were dried whole, spread out on the ground), and of salting the largest specimens meant that resource was available to the population inland. Some fishmeal was used as camel fodder or as fertilizer, for example, silversides in vegetable gardens. In recent years, the UAEs population has grown at an unprecedented rate and tourism and trade have flourished, resulting in a large demand for seafood. This has led to a substantial investment in a modern fishing fleet and an increase in boat numbers, boat 6

sizes, and better equipment. The consequence is a higher fishing effort and a greater depletion of stocks: the bounty enjoyed by so many for so long is in rapid decline. Environmental organizations such as Environment Agency Abu Dhabi (EAD) are carrying out surveys of fish stocks to accurately assess the situation. Fishing activities are being monitored and managed. Fishing licenses have been limited, the use of fish traps has been regulated, net sizes have been controlled and periods when fishing can take place have been stipulated. Fish markets As the fish markets in UAE is quietly well established and appropriately managed. There are two huge fish markets in UAE. These markets are: Mina port fish market in Abu Dhabi and Diera Fish market in Dubai. Both these markets are one-stop installment of having dried fish market, meat market, fruit and vegetable market, spices market, and small groceries which are all just adjacent to the fish market, and all are just under one roof. Other than buying and selling of sea food, there is a proper arrangement of cooking. If any customer wants a fried fish, he/she can get the fried fish also. Because there are big ovens have installed. Just buy a big fish or prawns in the fish market, and then take it to any of the stall for grilling or frying. Their cooking time takes between 20-30 minutes and they charge AED 10 (USD 2.70) per kilo regardless of the method of cooking. The cleaning and cutting section is also there. The customer is not willing to get the services of fried fish and want to bake it at home. Customer has this privilege also, he/she should go to the cleaning and cutting section and can get a chopped fish according to their own desire. The fishes are of great variety including milk fishes, tilapias, squids, mackerels, sardines, mullets, pomfrets, tunas, crabs, and many others. These seafood treasures come from as far away as Taiwan, and Spain. Locally caught seafood usually comes from the neighboring countries such as Umm Al Quwain and Oman. Fish from the India, Srilanka, Pakistan and Bangladesh are also available there. The sea where these fishes are caught is just a few steps away from the market.

Huge piles of heavy lively fresh fishes are being wheeled by wheelbarrows all over the place to finally put the fishes into their respective kiosk spots, and this starts as early as 5am. The fish traders are amazingly skilled linguists. They are able to speak many foreign dialects. If you are a new customer, you'd surely be entertained enough that you would actually forget that you should be haggling. In amazement, you'll just end up giving in into their demanded price.

The government should developed number of small ice plants near the port. Every fish trader should have the full access to these ice plants by paying some charges. Next, there should be the proper up gradation of fishing storage plants. If any sort of repair is needed, that should be provided immediately. The proper actions have to be taken for the promotion of marine aqua culture. Also the full guidance and assistance must be provided to the fish traders.
