By 2025, African governments hope that 40 percent of the total fish consumed in Africa will be met by aquaculture. Ongoing research and training provided by the WorldFish-run Africa Aquaculture Research and Training Center in Egypt will be critical to achieving this goal.
With the successful expansion of tilapia aquaculture in Egypt, improved farming and fish handling practices, and the high price of alternative protein sources, chefs in Cairo are starting to take more notice of locally-farmed tilapia.
Aquaculture, the farming of aquatic animals and plants, is the fastest-growing food-production sector in the world. Today, this source provides half of all fish for human consumption (FAO 2016).
