Fishery Production Could Increase to 3,800 Tons from 2024 in Gaza

The Gaza Province foresees to reach, until the end of 2024, a maximum production capacity of 3800 tons of fish in captivity, which will allow the Government to receive around 530 million of meticais in income.

For the effect, over 274 million meticais should be invested for the increase of production, from the current 2900 tons to 3800 tons per year.

The actions will focus on the creation of 600 cages with a capacity of 2950 tonnes of fish per year and also 700 tanks that will result in an annual increase of around 1,200 tonnes.

The Gaza Provincial Director for Agriculture, Livestock and Fisheries, Dalilo Latifo, said that with the volume of investment underway, the province may in the next two years have an acceptable production to support local needs.

“The projections indicate that, with this volume of investment, tax revenues will be 530 million. It is an investment that is worth making,” he predicted.

For this programme private individuals will be favoured, as well as associations that are interested in developing commercial aquaculture.

“The strategy also includes the production of feed, ease of access to tanks, conditions for market access and financing of projects in this area, which is still a major constraint to the development of the aquaculture value chain,” he said.

The current aquaculture potential stands at 800,000 tonnes, of which 730,000 tonnes comes from freshwater and 2,000 tonnes from the sea.
