The aquaculture sector makes a significant contribution to income, employment creation and food security of Egypt.

Despite this, the economic performance of the sector is not well understood or documented.

This report from the WorldFish Center presents the outputs of a value-chain study of the sector. It provides quantitative and qualitative information about financial performance, employment creation, and the critical factors impacting on the performance of each sub-sector of the value-chain.

The results show that the industry is sustainable and generates considerable profits and employment, however the sector as a whole is under increasing financial pressure. Critical factors facing the sector and impacting on profitability, can be grouped into those related to inputs, those related to production, and those related to the marketing, transportation and sale of product.
