This short video would still give an idea about fish farms of earthen ponds located in Kafr El Sheikh whereas about 50% of farmed fish in Egypt is produced. Even though the size of ponds vary according to variety of reasons, production ponds generally vary between one to two hectars/pond. Smaller size ponds are seen in some farms; these ponds are used as nurseries. The video shows some drained ponds which were harvest while most of the ponds are under water. The Small buildings seen in central locations are used for storing batches of fish feed whereas the feed bulk is stored in nearby locations. The farm size usually ranges from 5 – 10 hectars.
