He mentioned: The definitive agreement of the Ministry of Science, Research and Technology with three research institutes is one of the honors that represents the scientific degree of the affiliated research institutes to the Iranian Fisheries Science and Research Institute. Also, holding four scientific research conferences in Bandar Abbas, Mazandaran, Ahvaz and in March of this year in Bushehr are among other things that the Iranian Fisheries Science and Research has been working on with full force for their implementation. Of course, celebrating the 100th anniversary of the establishment of the Iranian Fisheries Science and Research Institute should also be added to these honors.

He said: Research in the field of algae and aquatic plants, edible shellfish and sea cucumbers, producing and farming of Astacus leptodactylus in farms, selective breeding with the participation of private sector and particularly supporting the project of cage fish farming are among other goals that the institute pursues with absolute certainty. It is worth noting that the new website of the Iranian Fisheries Science and Research Institute was also unveiled at the ceremony.
