The WorldFish Aquaculture Research and Training Center is located outside Abbassa, a typical village in Egypt's Nile delta. The WorldFish Center launched its regional research and training activities in 1998. Courses were held in the center from 1999 to 2009. The growth in training over this period reflects the growth in aquaculture in Egypt and globally, the need for trained technicians, and the growing reputation of the Center in this field. The unique location of Abbassa, the clean and quiet environment, and the variety of efficient facilities have been utilized by the dedicated staff to carry out one of the most successful series of training programs in the region.
