Israel is a small country located in the middle of a desert with natural water being scarce. In order to combat the water shortage, Israel has spent years studying, researching and developing technologies, using a lot of creativity to try to find alternative methods of water supply.
Agriculture in Israel has become a force to be reckoned with in the fields of dairy farming and aquaculture as well as efficient irrigation methods, greenhouse farming and agriculture in desert areas using brackish water for both agriculture and aquaculture.
The Fish farming industry in Israel originally began in the north of the country during the 1950’s. Since then artificial ponds were built near the coastal areas and around the Sea of Galilee which enabled fish farmers to supply a wider variety of fish according to Israeli requirements.
