The construction of Iran’s biggest super-intensive fish farm commenced in the southern Khuzestan Province’s Gotvand County after a ground-breaking ceremony last week.
“This fish farm, in which 1.5 trillion rials ($5.2 million) will be invested, is to be constructed on a 50-hectare plot of land. The farm will produce 30 kilograms of fish in one cubic meter of water,” said Gholamreza Shariati, Khuzestan’s governor general.
The official added that when completed, the farm will yield 10,000 tons of seafood per year, IRNA reported.
“Our plan is to inaugurate the first phase with a production capacity of 1,000 tons in the next eight months,” Shariati said.
