Israeli Technology Behind Europe’s Largest Fish Farm

The Israeli "Amnoon" fish, known also as St. Peter's Fish or Israeli (blue) Tilapia, is quickly becoming a staple fish around the world, just like Israel's fish-farming technology.

Last week, Poland opened the largest fish farm in Europe, taking advantage of Israel's high-tech methods that allow farmers to generate a larger amount of fish. Since Tilapia tend to eat weeds, algae, and other underwater plants, growing them can also help keep rivers, lakes and even municipal water supplies clean.

The Polish fish farm was opened by the Israeli company AquaMaof Aquaculture Technologies, which has developed a system that breeds fish under controlled temperature conditions in any weather or climate, cutting energy costs by some 70 percent, the company said, according to the Times of Israel. The 24,000-square-foot facility should produce about 1,200 tons of tilapia annually.
