Pearl farming

Before the oil industry was developed, the exportation of natural pearls was a major industry in Abu Dhabi. In response to a request by the government of Abu Dhabi to help it revive the pearl industry, JODCO launched a pearl farming project in 2006.
Following a site inspection and two years of farming trials, the company has been supporting the Abu Dhabi Environment Agency on its pearl farming project since 2009 through research and technical assistance under the supervision of two Japanese pearl cultivation experts.
