Over 100K Tons of Seafood Exported Last Year

More than one million tons of seafood were produced in Iran in the last Iranian year (ended March 20, 2017), of which about 103,000 tons worth $412 million were exported, the head of Iran Fisheries Organization said.
“About 470,000 tons were produced through aqua farming and the rest were harvested from the Caspian Sea, the Persian Gulf, the Sea of Oman and international waters,” Hassan Salehi was also quoted as saying by IRNA.
The official, who is also a deputy agriculture minister, added that the ministry plans to produce 10 tons of caviar and 10,000 tons of sturgeon meat annually by the end of the current fiscal year (March 20, 2018).
Salehi noted that last year, per capita seafood consumption in Iran increased to 10.6 kilograms from 10 kilograms the year before, but it has yet to reach the global average of 20 kilograms per year.
