Seafood Production at Record High

A record high of more than 1 million tons of seafood was produced in the last Iranian year (ended March 19, 2016), according to the head of Iran Fisheries Organization. “Some 40% of the sum were earned through aquafarming,” he was quoted as saying by IRNA. Meanwhile, plans are underway for cage farming of 20,000 tons of fish every year, mostly in the northern provinces of Gilan, Mazandaran and Golestan. According to the Management and Planning Organization of Iran, financial incentives will be granted to potential investors in the field of cage farming. In this new cultivation method in Iran, cages are placed in lakes, ponds, rivers or oceans to contain and protect fish until they can be harvested.
