Sea cucumber farming in the Red Sea

Mohamed Saeed

Sea cucumber are vital role players in the health of ocean ecosystems who have been almost completely fished out in Marsa Alam

Years ago in Marsa Alam, we would see sea cucumber everywhere. The water was much cleaner. They were overfished and sold at very high prices. Starting a cucumber farming project can help restore marine habitat through water filtration, nutrient recycling and sediment stabilization.
