A total of 2,500 tons of sturgeon meat and 10 tons of farmed caviar were produced in the last Iranian year (ended March 19, 2020), according to the deputy head of Iran's Fisheries Organization for aquaculture affairs. 
Noting that demand for sturgeon fry stands at 1-2 million annually, Hossein Abdolhay added, “Demand has always outweighed sturgeon fry output. However, the recent entry of private sector players in the field of sturgeon production has solved this problem in the current year.” 
The official noted that total pond area devoted to shrimp farming was 12,336 hectares last year, from which the country produced 46,000 tons of shrimp last year, IRNA reported.
