Integrated tilapia farming and agriculture in Wafra (Kuwait)

In this model, Nile tilapia (Oreochromis niloticus) has been farmed in concrete tanks in agriculture farms where agricultural crops such as alfa alfa, tomatoes, potatoes, onions, etc., are cultivated. Such integrated farms are located in several locations including Al-Wafra, the location the attach picture shows. In order to facilitate draining, tanks are constructed abovr ground level. Water used in these farms is underground brackish of adequate salinity (5 – 8 g/l) which suits tilapia and recommended agricultural crops.

Note: We decided not to watermark the photos in order not to upset its clarity. However, we trust you will notify us if you wish to use a picture or more. This will be appreciated.
