It is a mega project that aims to increase the per capita share of fish and ultimately export to Arab and European countries.
It is the largest project of its kind in the Middle East.
It is a huge added value to the development of the Suez Canal and the Sinai Peninsula because it entails industrial and urban settlements there.
It provides 10,000 direct and indirect job opportunities in different fields.
It will eventually lead to self-sufficiency, reducing import and allowing export to Arab and European markets. This will bring about hard currency in the country.
New technologies in fish farming will be used for the first time in Egypt, such as cage culture, and the level of fish processing will be enhanced to increase the per capital share of fish.
The project is built on 26,000 feddans with 17.5 kilometres on the Mediterranean and 10 kilometres in depth east of Port Said.
