Omani fisherman becomes millionaire after rare find

06-Nov-2016 :

Muscat: An Omani fisherman has hit the jackpot after he found floating “whale vomit” on the shores of Qurayat province on October 30 worth one million Omani riyals (Dh9.5 million).

Ambergris is a wax-like soft substance secreted from the intestines of the sperm whale, which is how it got its name “whale vomit”.

The substance is often found floating in tropical seas and used in perfume manufacturing.

Khalid Al Sinani, who is in his late 30s, worked long and tiring days as a fisherman to put food on the table for his family.
