The Cultural Programs and Heritage Festivals Committee of Abu Dhabi has announced the launch of the 2nd edition of Al Dhafra Grand Kingfish Championship for Men and Women.

The championship includes three competitions, the Dalma, the Al Mughirah and the Al Dhafra Grand Championships, bringing its total number of prizes to 60. The Championship is set to take place at Al Mirfa city in Al Dhafra as part of the Kingfish Fishing Season in Abu Dhabi.

The Championship aims to introduce the public to the coastlines and islands in the Al Dhafra region, and to offer traditional fishing enthusiasts the opportunity to engage in their favourite sport. It also aims to revive fishing as a hobby and promote the spirit of healthy competition while preserving marine life sustainability by regulating kingfish fishing and using traditional fishing methods derived from UAE’s heritage.

The organising Committee has stipulated that the only fishing method allowed at the Championship is trolling, fishing using nets of all kinds and spear-guns is strictly forbidden.
