Aquaculture Production Technology Ltd. (APT)

APT - Aquaculture Production Technology (Israel) Ltd. was established in 1978 by a group of scientists from the Hebrew University of Jerusalem and a group of industrial development engineers. Fish farming is a multidisciplinary, capital-intensive, technology-based food production branch. Fish farming, like all animal husbandries, can be implemented in various ways. APT has gained the means, experience and expertise to ensure successful design, construction and operation of large-scale advanced fish farms. APT has been active in aquaculture fish farming in some 30 countries, across 5 continents.
