A serial entrepreneur, Ramie Murray started his career when he founded a property marketing design agency, “The Big Picture FZ” in 2005, following his studies in Industrial and Product Design from the London South Bank University. He later co-founded the Oman-based renewable energy company “Mahd Energy”. While working in Oman, he realized how untapped the Eastern coastline of Fujairah and Oman was, despite pristine and nutrient rich waters. Coming from Scotland, where salmon farming is king, and growing up in the UAE, with it’s rich seafood heritage, Ramie always had his eye on aquaculture. His passion for sustainable food production drove him to attempt farming oysters in the UAE. After a successful pilot study, he established Dibba Bay oysters, perfecting the best gourmet oyster possible, and pioneering the pivot from the traditional Arabian pearl oyster industry to the farming of an edible oyster species in the region. Since its inception in 2016, Dibba Bay has grown tremendously, now producing over 300,000 oysters a month with a projected growth of over 600,000 oysters a month, harvesting throughout the entire year, with an expanding presence in the UAE and beyond.
