Improving employment and incomes through development of Egypt’s aquaculture sector (IEIDEAS)

The IEIDEAS project, funded by the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation and managed by WorldFish and CARE in collaboration with the Ministry of Agriculture and Land Reclamation, has focused on the development of the Egyptian aquaculture value chain. In 2011, SDC and WorldFish conducted a value chain assessment. The study proved that the aquaculture industry supplied approximately 60% of the country’s fish, providing affordable animal-sourced protein for Egyptian consumers, and supported at least 100,000 jobs for fish farmers, input suppliers (hatcheries and feed mills), wholesalers and retailers.
