Ornamental Fish Exports Double Last Year

About 230 million ornamental fish were produced in Iran in the last Iranian year (ended March 20, 2017), of which 66 million worth $2.2 million were exported, registering a twofold increase compared with the year before, the chairman of Iran Fisheries Organization told Financial Tribune.
“The exports were mainly made to Turkey, Azerbaijan, the UAE and Iraq. There were also two shipments to East Asia last year,” Hassan Salehi, who is also a deputy agriculture minister, added.
Isfahan, Tehran and Gilan, according to the official, top the list of Iranian provinces producing ornamental fish. Close to 8,700 people earn their living through ornamental fish farming in Iran.
To expand the lucrative industry, Salehi said, Iran Fisheries Organization plans to launch specialized parks and complexes across the country for producing ornamental fish.
