Seafood Exports Exceed $120m

About 39,000 tons of seafood worth $121 million were exported from Iran during the five months to Aug. 22, according to the director general of Seafood Quality Improvement, Processing and Expansion Office with Iran’s Fisheries Organization.
Isa Golshahi also noted that in the last Iranian year, which ended March 20, 2017, some 110,000 tons of seafood worth close to $412 million were exported from the country.
Head of Iran Fisheries Organization Hassan Salehi said more than 1 million tons of seafood were produced last year.
“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,” he was quoted as saying by IRNA.
According to Salehi, per capita seafood consumption in Iran increased to 10.6 kilograms last year from 10 kilograms the year before, but it has yet to reach the global average of 20 kilograms per year.
The Second International Fisheries Industry Exhibition is scheduled for October 25-28 at Tehran’s International Permanent Fairground, the official website of the expo, Ifex.ir, reported.
IFEX 2017, organized by Info and Trade Group, is being organized with the aim of providing the chance for active players in the fisheries industry to showcase their latest advancements in the field as well as to transfer knowledge, do marketing, improve distribution system, ease business liaisons and introduce new potential opportunities for investment.
