National Center for Mariculture

Israel Oceanographic and Limnological Research (IOLR) is a national research institution (non-profit governmental corporation) established in 1967 with the mission of generating knowledge for sustainable use and protection of Israel's marine, coastal and freshwater resources. IOLR conducts scientific research in the fields of oceanography, limnology, mariculture and marine biotechnology.

IOLR’s studies in mariculture are conducted at the National Center for Mariculture (NCMA) in Eilat. The Government of Israel has decided to absorb NCMA as part of its Agricultural Research Administration. The change is currently taking place.

The Tekhelet Foundation’s R&D program will be performed at the NCMA laboratories on the coast of the Red Sea, in Eilat
