Ein HaMifratz (Hebrew: עֵין הַמִּפְרָץ, lit. The Bay's Eye, for the immigrants could see the whole bay of Haifa from the settling area) is a kibbutz near Acre in northern Israel. Located on the Mediterranean coast, it falls under the jurisdiction of Mateh Asher Regional Council. In 2009 it had a population of 1,131.
According to the Jewish National Fund, upon its founding, Ein Hamifratz was immediately attacked by "Arab gangs". The initial problems facing the settlers were the saltwater swamps and the shifting sands at the mouth of the Naaman river. The settler originally did mixed farming and fish breeding. In 1947, the kibbutz had a population of 400.
Major industries are Yamaton Ltd., a honeycomb paper factory operated jointly with Kibbutz Ga'aton, and IMA, a corrugated cardboard manufacturing company. Ein Hamifratz also operates a fish farm and a shopping mall.
