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

GENERAL OBJECTIVE

To support the development of technical skills in aquaculture in Morocco. 

SPECIFIC OBJECTIVES:

  • To conduct the necessary studies (identification and design) for the installation of a fish 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. The farm is expected to produce approximately 180 tonnes of marine fish per year.

ACTIVITIES

  • Phase 1: Characterization of the project area and selection of the most suitable fish species and the most appropriate rearing techniques
  • Phase 2: The technical set-up of the farm
  • Phase 3: Installation of the farm: monitoring and overseeing the setting up of the farm to validate 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 for the installation and running of a mussel farm that will serve as a model mussel farm facility on the Moroccan Atlantic coast
  • Phase 5: Developing a guide of best management practices to run the farm

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) 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.

The project will be managed by Ms. LETIZIA ALIMONTI.
