Analysis of Egyptian Red Sea Fishing Ports

Mahmoud Sharaan, Abdelazim Negm, Moheb Iskander, and Mohamed El-Tarabily

Abstract—This study aims to present a comprehensive analysis for four cases of Egyptian fishing ports that located on the sensitive environmental area on the Suez Gulf and the Red Sea coasts. The analysis includes the current environmental, planning, and facilities issues. The four investigated ports are the developed, undeveloped artificial fishing ports, natural fishing port, and landing site for fishing practices. The analyzed data are collected from different sources including field survey, visual observation (as a monitoring technique to update the collected data), personal interviews, discussion with the main stakeholders (fishers and administrators) and the available official reports. The current status of these fishing ports is highlighted. The results show that the investigated fishing ports are suffering from increasing of wastes forms with different levels. The findings associated with the catches issues of this sensitive area of the Red Sea and the related fishermen activities are discussed. Also, the results indicate a significant deterioration of the basic infrastructure of natural port and undeveloped artificial ports. A significant variance of the available facilities in the four ports is observed. The recommendation for the future improvements and expansions plans to increase the efficiency of each port are presented.

Index Terms—Environmental issues, fishing ports facilities issues, planning issues, red sea.
