EDIT
UAE's Pearl Industry to Shine Once More?
AIRED:
Before oil, pearl diving was once the bread and butter of the UAE economy. Local fishermen throughout the Gulf used to dive deep into these warm waters, hunting for the precious pearls which provided a main source of income for many people. But the local industry vanished after World War One when new Japanese technology was developed to produce cultured pearls. Now, using those same methods, the tradition is being revived at this oyster farm in Ras Al Khaimah.moreless
