Aquaculture Entrepreneurship

Project Aim

This project increases the capacities of Palestinian businesspeople to establish fish farms in the West Bank through providing training in aquaculture system establishment and enhancing opportunities for business cooperation between Palestinians and Israelis.

How It Works

This project trains Palestinian businesspeople and entrepreneurs are in Aquaculture systems, including fish breeding for food and ornamental fish, in order to build capacities in this relatively new and largely unknown field in the West Bank. Introducing fish farms could stimulate the growth of a lucrative industry, and the fish produced could provide nutritional benefits to people of the region. The project's training is based on aquaculture research and development already conducted within R&D centers established in the West Bank. Workshops include lectures and visits to operating fish farms in Israel and the West Bank. The project encourages cooperation between Palestinian and Israeli fish farmers, as well as future potential business relations between Palestinian fish farmers and Israeli companies. The project is supported by the Pratt Foundation.
