Israeli group told it can build multi-million dollar fish farm


An Israeli group has proposed growing one million pounds of Australian sea bass for export, annually, in a fish farm.

The proposal has been accepted by the Cabinet of Antigua and Barbuda.

The farm would cost more than US$25 million dollars to build and to operate according to the government.

The investors had been invited to Cabinet last Wednesday, but the Cabinet meeting was switched to last Friday, June 1, 2018.

The Commissioner for projects, therefore, implementation made the presentation on their behalf.

“The Cabinet approved the project following examination of the documentation and asked the Commissioner to proceed with having the land surveyed and the lease drawn-up,” a statement from cabinet said.

  1. Just so?? What about Indies Greens, Lincoln Farms and others?? Taking bread out of the “small man” mouth??

    • Exactly. And every investment seem to be multi million but when completed looks like some shack up. Are these foreign investors the only one who have ideas that can be brought to realization.
      Tired of the mentality that a man can’t be a Kung in their own country. Antigua is definitely not for Antiguans.

  2. Hey a water we want not for fish ..we surrounded by water big boss …our water situation is a mess

  3. They are leaving Israel to come to Antigua to grow Australian fish? Something sound fishy.

  4. Y’all Antiguans so dumb…. Y’all never learn but then again yall put them in power so shut up and reap the consequences
