Hahotrim (Hebrew: הַחוֹתְרִים, lit. The Rowers) is a kibbutz in northern Israel. Located near Tirat Carmel, it falls under the jurisdiction of Hof HaCarmel Regional Council. In 2006 it had a population of 516.
The beginnings of the kibbutz were in 1942, with the formation of a work company near Kiryat Haim. In 1948 they moved into homes in the German colony, before establishing the kibbutz in 1952. Its name was derived from the ambitions of the founders to work in fishing.
The kibbutz was established on the land of a depopulated Palestinian village named Al-Tira in June 1948.
