Seafood Exports at $512m Last Year

About $512 million worth of seafood and seafood products were exported in the last Iranian year that ended on March 20, the head of Iran Fisheries Organization said. “Close to $412 million worth of seafood and around $100 million worth of products such as seafood and ornamental fish feed were exported during the period,” Hassan Salehi was also quoted as saying by Mehr News Agency. “Over 1 million tons of seafood were produced last year, around 470,000 tons of which were through aqua farming and the rest were harvested from the Caspian Sea, the Persian Gulf, the Sea of Oman and international waters.” Salehi, who is also a deputy agriculture minister, noted that last year per capita seafood consumption in Iran increased to 10.6 kilograms from 10.2 kilograms the year before, but it is yet to reach the global annual average of 20 kilograms.
