After years of decline, the Euphrates and Middle East Fish Farms, Iraq’s largest and best designed hatcheries, were operating at less than 40% capacity due to conflict, sanctions, and production problems.
In 2008, USAID’s Inma Agribusiness Program began a partnership with Euphrates Fish Farm to help improve the carp fingerling production in Iraq.
With support from USAID-Inma and the Iraqi Ministry of Agriculture, the farm has produced over 32 million fingerlings over the past several years.
