Integrated aquaculture – agriculture project in Gaza (Palestine)

The integration concept has been found optimum for aquaculture project in Gaza especially when water scarcity is considered. Field experience showed that the agriculture component in this integrated system includes vegetables (e.g. tomato, eggplant, and sweet potatoes), horticulture such as date palm, guava or olive trees.

Fish productivity in the aquaculture project is about 5-6 kg/m3. Fish produced from fish pools sell their harvest –which is mainly tilapia- either to fish traders or directly to consumers and of course the households consume part of the harvest.
