Seafood Exports Rise 15%

Some $350 million worth of seafood were exported in the last Iranian year (March 2015-16), registering a 15% rise compared to a year before, the head of Iran’s Fisheries Organization said. “Of the 82,000 tons of seafood exported last year, only 1,000 tons headed to Russia. This is while the Russian market has the capacity to absorb some 200,000 tons and our northern provinces must take advantage of this opportunity,” Hassan Salehi was also quoted as saying by IRNA. Salehi noted that per capita fish consumption in Iran amounts to 10 kilograms, which is way below the global average of 20 kilograms. Iran produced a record high of more than 1 million tons of seafood last year.
