Emirates FishingFishing is one of those recreational sports that you might either love or hate. It is not exactly a clean sport, but it is definitely not as dirty as hunting other types of animals. There are numerous places around the UAE where you can catch a variety of fish. If you are one to travel to other Emirates or Oman, you should read up on the regulations wherever you go. You should also find out about places where the fish should not be eaten or should only be eaten in limited quantities due to mercury poisoning.
