Latest plan to make Negev bloom: Fish farms
Demand far outstrips supply of fish, around the world and in Israel; farm to focus on sea bream and grouper.
Making the Negev Desert bloom has long been a dream for the Land of Israel. Now one company has an idea how to make that happen in at least one corner of the arid space. Aquatec Fisheries is building an industrial fish farm in Ramat Hanegev at a total envisioned investment of nearly NIS 100 million, helped by an NIS 20 million grant from state.
