The Sustainable Fisheries for Enhanced Water Resources in Armenia (SFEWRA) project addresses the issues of depleting groundwater resources in Ararat Valley. Although being profitable in current market circumstances, fish farms mostly operate non-efficient water utilization technologies.

The main goal of the project is the preservation and efficient use of water resources in the Ararat Valley. The project includes:

  • Analysis of targeted fish farms in Ararat Valley to address the issues related to improving water quality and increasing efficiency of water use
  • Revealing alternative options for discharge water reuse

Analysis of current regulatory framework and recommendations for improved policy for water usage in fish farm production systems and for better management of discharge water.
