Egyptian fish farmers learn best aquaculture practices

Aquaculture in Egypt employs more than 140,000 people and, as market demand grows, the industry has boomed over the last two decades and continues to grow at a rapid pace.

Through training on “best management practices” (read more), the Improving Employment and Income through Development of Egypt’s Aquaculture Sector (IEIDEAS) project aims to sustainably strengthen this growing industry by helping farmers to increase the productivity and profitability of their ponds.

Teaching Egyptian fish farmers the industry’s best aquaculture practices has helped increase their production and income. Strengthening the industry’s small and medium-scale farms will generate new employment opportunities and meet the country’s growing demand for fish.

The project is funded by the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation and aims to create 10,000 new industry jobs.
