Egypt leads African surge in fish feeds

Investments announced for Egyptian aquafeed manufacturing plants featuring extrusion will have the potential to increase the national production of extruded tilapia feeds by more than 50 percent.

Egypt will see a rapid expansion in its capacity for producing extruded fish feeds, according to recent announcements and reports. Two major European players have announced a significant increase in their Egyptian aquafeed investments, while at least two poultry-feed companies with headquarters in Egypt are described as being well ahead with plans to start their own fish-feed production.
