Al-Fayrouz Fishing Farms
East of Port Said

Owner: The National Company for Fisheries and Aquaculture.

Project Manager: Armed Forces Engineering Authority.

Consultant: Dr. Fathy Abd Rabbo and Partners Office (FACB).

Project Overview:

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 developing 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 imports 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 capita share of fish.

  • The project is built on 26,000 feddans with 17.5 kilometers on the Mediterranean and 10 kilometers in depth east of Port Said.

Our Scope of Work:

  • Construction works of fish basins embankments, water inlet chambers, water drain chambers, drain channels, Canals channels, HDPE insulations, concrete lining for main canals, rock protection for main drains, and all surrounding service roads for all work stages.

  • The works of PVC pipe drainage networks, regulators, bridges, and culverts.

  • Construction of Main seawater entrance including two stone breakwaters, dredging works, reinforced concrete floating pontoon for ship berthing, and 3 m diameter of reinforced concrete pipe culvert.

  • Construction of two jetties for the free fishing lake with a length of 600 m perpendicular to the beach and extending into the sea.

  • Construction of 2 concrete bridges to extend the coastal road path along the area north of the fish farms.
