Fish in a greenhouse

A company based in Los Guiraos (Cuevas) has become the first in Andalucia to commercially produce fish in greenhouses. Freshwater Red Tilapia are being bred in the reservoirs and water systems that supply the 150 farmers who makeup the cooperative behind the scheme.

The scheme is expected to produce 100 tons of fish annually, and a local chain of supermarkets is preparing to sell them. The fish require warm, clean and fresh water which is already being supplied to the greenhouses and so this is a “natural development of our resources” according to the company.
