Aquaculture is considered to be the only possible solution to increase fish production in Egypt. In its development strategy, the Ministry of Agriculture and Land Reclamation, plans to increase Egypt's total fish production to 1.5 million tonnes by 2017 and is targeting a harvest of 1 million tonnes from aquaculture. The sector is growing at levels exceeding those targeted in the plan. This expected increase, alongside the planned development in poultry production, will hopefully assist in improving the per capita consumption of animal protein. Aquaculture also creates employment opportunities for a large number of unemployed graduates.
