Using native species to raise fish in cages

 

The head of the country's Fisheries Research Institute announced the studies of fisheries researchers in achieving the biotechnology of native fish species suitable for cage breeding.

Dr. Mahmoud Bahmani, noting that the fish farming in cages is one of the priorities of the Ministry of Jihad-Agriculture, told: Extensive studies have been conducted to obtain the biotechnology of native fish species suitable for this purpose at the National Fisheries Research Institute for cage farming in the south, as well as sturgeon and Caspian Sea salmon in the north of the country.

He believes that in Iran, with the help of the Iranian Fisheries Organization, and based on pilot experiments which were implemented on a commercial scale in the provinces of Gilan, Mazandaran, Bushehr, Hormozgan and Khuzestan, and based on the statistics of the Fisheries Organization of Iran, the amount of fish production in fish farming cages in 2018 has reached more than 14 thousand tons. The head of the country's Fisheries Research Institute of Iran stated that: the existence of fertile areas with suitable depth for aquaculture in cages, existence of indigenous species in all coastal waters of the south and north of Iran, as well as existence of environmental conditions and appropriate ecological facilities in the territorial coasts of Iran, possibility to use new systems of fish breeding in cages, and the existence of shelter areas such as Qeshm and Kish Islands as suitable places for the construction of fish farms in the cage, make our plan of using native species to raise fish in cages feasible and workable.
