GAZA CITY: Palestinians stand by the banks of tanks at Al-Bahar Fish Farm, waiting to pick up sea bream to cook at home, or grilled in an adjacent restaurant.

Al-Bahar is one of three fish farms in the Gaza Strip, adjacent to the Mediterranean Sea, that were started by Palestinian investors to meet the needs of the local market.

The fish are raised in special tanks containing salt or freshwater, which are equipped with oxygen pumps and water purification equipment.
