Aquatech Fisheries' flagship project is an industrial fish farm with an annual production rate of 2,000 tons of Barramundi. The Aquatech facility produces fish that are distributed fresh across the country. The Negev farm was built as a multi-stage and modular project that will be upgraded to produce additional products as well as additional fish of various species.
Situated on a land plot of 35 Dunam (3.5 ha) in the southern part of Israel, the Aquatech Negev fishery is an advanced RAS farm, spearheaded by a local team of experts from all disciplines of fish farming, and using cutting-edge technology to grow 2,000 tons of Barramundi annually.
The Negev fishery technology is a unique land-based RAS technology offering the world’s most advanced, sustainable, and environmentally-friendly fish farming solution.
Located right in the heart of the desert, Aquatech uses local geothermal water, which enters the system at a temperature of 37°C and is optimal in its composition for barramundi farming. After passing through the technological cycle, a small amount of water is discharged outside of the facility, and using a special irrigation system this water is reused for irrigation of nearby olive groves.
Due to its unique location, the company efficiently uses solar energy to power its operation using a photovoltaic system.
