NEW AWARD in MOROCCO : DESIGN, MONITOR THE INSTALLATION AND SUPPORT THE OPERATIONS OF AN OFFSHORE LONG-LINE PILOT MUSSEL FARM OFF THE ATLANTIC COAST IN SIDI IFNI

AESA has recently been awarded with the service contract: DESIGN, MONITOR THE INSTALLATION AND SUPPORT THE OPERATIONS OF AN OFFSHORE LONG-LINE PILOT MUSSEL FARM OFF THE ATLANTIC COAST IN SIDI IFNI, MOROCCO.

Background

In 2009, Morocco launched the Halieutis Plan - a national strategy for the development of the fisheries sector - within which the development of aquaculture has been identified as an important growth driver for the fisheries sector. In this context, in 2011 was established the National Agency for the Development of Aquaculture (ANDA) and it has drawn up six Aquaculture Development Plans covering almost the entire coast of Morocco, where a significant production potential has been identified, particularly in finfish and shellfish farming. For this reason, the Department of Maritime Fisheries (DPM) and ANDA have requested support from FAO, the Norwegian and Dutch cooperation to set up the foundations of a capacity-building programme in aquaculture.

General Objective:
To support the development of technical skills in aquaculture in Morocco.

Specific Objectives:

  • Conduct the necessary studies (identification and design) for the installation of a mussel educational pilot farm off the coast of Sidi Ifni in the Atlantic
  • To monitor its installation, provide quality control, and assist in the running of the farm over one production cycle.

Activities

  • Phase 1: Characterization of the project area and identification of most suitable rearing techniques
  • Phase 2: Technical set-up of the farm
  • Phase 3: Installation of the farm: monitoring an overseeing the setting up of the farm with a view to validating the conformity of works and installations at the end
  • Phase 4: Supporting of operations over one production cycle and developing a guide of best management practices to run a mussel farm.

 

AESA a récemment obtenu le contrat de service ETUDE DE CONCEPTION, SUIVI DE L’INSTALLATION ET APPUI ET A L’EXPLOITATION D’UNE STATION DE DEMONSTRATION MYTILICOLE AU LARGE DE LA COTE DE SIDI IFNI AU MAROC

Background

En 2009, le Maroc a lancé le plan Halieutis - une stratégie nationale pour le développement du secteur halieutique- , dans lequel le développement de l’aquaculture a été identifié comme un important relais de croissance. Dans ce contexte, en 2011 l’ANDA a élaboré six plans d’aménagement aquacoles couvrant à peu près toute la côte Marocaine, où un potentiel de production important a été identifié notamment en pisciculture et en conchyliculture.  C’est dans ce cadre que le Département de la Pêche Maritime (DPM) et l’ANDA, ont fait appel au soutien de la FAO et à la coopération Norvégienne et Néerlandaise en vue de mettre en place les assises d’un programme de renforcement des capacités en aquaculture

Objectif global du projet: Appui au développement des métiers d’aquaculture en Maroc.

Objectifs spécifiques: mener les études nécessaires (identification et conception) pour la mise en place d’une ferme pédagogique mytilicole au large de la côte de Sidi Ifni en Atlantique et suivre l’installation, assurer le contrôle de qualité et assister les opérations de pendant un cycle de production.
